In July of 2001, I got a message from Reid Stratton (firstname.lastname@example.org) who is looking for parts for his Judge pedal car. He is missing the door, trunk and spoiler. He is looking for any info on finding these parts. Or he wants to find a way to get the dimensions so that he can mold them. Please email him if you can help.
CLICK-> The plate on the front of this Illinois car reads "R JUDGE". Picture #1. It is from John Mills who says he is the 4th owner. It is a Ram Air III 4 speed with hood tach, AM/FM stereo, power trunk release, console, hideaways, wood wheel, and original door edge guards.
CLICK-> Picture #2, left-rear view of a 1969 silver GTO Judge from John Mills
CLICK-> '69 GTO Judge at a car show with hood up. Notice the front plate reads "GLTY".
10/98 - Paul and Linda Filo (HERGTO2@aol.com) discovered this car posted on The Ultimate GTO Picture Site. It turns out that the Dudley, Ma. couple owns the car. Linda says: "Browsing thru your site, we got a huge surprise to see my husband's '69 Limelight Green Judge. That's the original color - Limelight Green, that's what he liked about the car when he first saw it. He bought it in 1970, had 8000 miles on it, Ram Air 3, 400, 4 speed, no frills car. Was the "family car" for years! Has been restored, and he plans on keeping it forever! I have 2 GTO's, one 1964 in process now and a 1965."
CLICK-> One of my all time favorites. Beautiful large shot of a '69 Judge with Hideaway Headlamps. Notice you can see the Judge sticker on top of the rear wing. This car reminds me of something. Back in the 80's, I saw a Carousel Red '69 Judge with dry-rotted tires parked in the parking lot of the Indiana State Fairgrounds. Someone had driven it to visit a swapmeet/car show they were having. This car was muddy and looked like they just pulled it out of a junkyard. All the paint was dull, the decals were very dried-out and cracked. The worst part - it had forklift holes right through the doors and door panels and seat side panels. It had been skewered in a junkyard, no doubt lifted onto a pile of junk cars. I was impressed that someone had saved it and drove it there. I always wondered what happened to that car?
CLICK-> Four views of a 1969 GTO Judge in dark green.
CLICK-> This christmas ornament is from the Hallmark Dreambook 2000 Keepsake Ornaments Collection, page 24. Sent in by Craig Selvey (email@example.com)
CLICK-> A magazine ad for a 1969 GTO Judge hangs on my wall. This newly-scanned version shows the wording at the bottom of the ad.
CLICK-> Pontiac must have taken a couple of pictures of this Carousel Red 1969 Judge. In this post-card version, the guy in the red jacket is gone and the background is lighter. Stan Kaminski found it and sent in a scan of the front and back.
CLICK-> Here's the back of the 1969 Judge post card advertisement. Stan comments, "The interesting thing is what features it says the Judge had but never got. They list a bench seat with fold down option, a small diameter leather covered steering wheel and a pulse wiper system."
CLICK-> Another ad that hangs in my office. This is a full page advertisement for the 1969 GTO Judge. This is the one with the headline; "Born Great". If you like this one, you can often find one for sale on ebay for about 6 to 10 dollars.
CLICK-> An early prototype 1969 Judge. I believe this picture originally was in a 1968 magazine article. Note the weird Judge stripes. The spoiler is different too - it's taller and doesn't swoop toward the front of the car as it comes down to meet the trunk. This car has the optional white rectangle cornering light.
CLICK-> This picture probably comes from the same 1968 article.
CLICK-> Lonely '69 car sits in a junkyard.
CLICK-> '69 car sits in a junkyard. Rob Schlack (firstname.lastname@example.org) emailed these images which, at first, may resemble a Judge. Study the large pictures.
Rob says: "Well what do you think? I found 69 GTO about 6 years ago and took the pictures because I live 400 miles away from the wrecking yard. But never made it back to pick it up? That is if it is even still there. What do you think of it, I'm thinking its a fake? It did have disc brakes. And supposedly the 3.55 Posi was still there. I hope it hasn't made it to the crusher. Maybe somebody knows about the rust free (body) gem in the Montana rough." Look at the "THE JUDGE" sticker on the trunk lid. It is incorrect. The location for that sticker is the top of the spoiler for 1969. They didn't move that sticker to the trunk lid till the next year in 1970.
