CLICK-> Carousel Red 1969 Judge hardtop owned by Warren Hanbury from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Warren tells us this story, "This original 4 speed Judge was purchased new in Cadiz, Ohio from the dealer showroom and was used as a street and drag car by the original owner who raced it at Dragway 42. My brother and I purchased the Judge from him in 1974 without the engine and transmission. We also used the Judge as a drag car building and installing a 1967 428 bored .60 over equipped with ported round port Ram Air II heads purchased from P J Heck. Cam is a Racer Brown Roller Cam, Jahns 12 to 1 Forged Pistons, Arma Steel Crank, Crane 1.65 roller rockers, Offey 360 medium rise dual quad intake with reworked 750 quadrajet carbs and a Mallory ignition and rev control. The transmission was swapped from 4 speed to an automatic turbo 400 with a Vega converter to compete in bracket racing. The Dual Gate Shifter and Line Lock are by Hurst. The engine is now updated with a Elderbrock Victor Manifold and 850 Holley but still has all the original internal vintage race parts. The Judge was raced regularly at Keystone Raceway Park in the late Seventies and Eighties running 12.00@ 117 MPH. the fastest the class rules allowed without installing a roll bar and at a time when Pure Pontiac Racers were few. The Judge now is raced a few times a year at Pittsburgh Raceway Park (formerly Keystone Raceway) and Norwalk Raceway Park, Ohio and attends a few Greater Pittsburgh GTO Club cruises and other events. The wheels are Radir's Bullet Spoke and the slicks are Eagle Dragway Special 15x28x10 compound 5. This Judge still has all original interior and only 43,000 miles. Most miles were put on the car when new. Although repainted twice it was never restored and always garaged."

CLICK-> Carousel Red 1969 Judge hardtop owned by Cale Benner from Mifflinburg, Pennsylvania. The picture submitter had this to say, "Cale and Dad found this 1969 PHS documented Judge for sale on ebay. They made Mom HIT the BID button.... Mom was on pain killers from sinus surgery and had no idea what she was doing! haha.... They thought it looked good in the pictures and discription but after buying it, getting a closer look and starting restoration they found that quick fixes hide so much... including the dead animals tucked inside of the seats! yikes! ... after one year (working almost every night and weekend) and getting help and parts from Ames, Performance Years, Wayne Garrison of the Royal GTO Club, and Ron Johnson owner of Potomac Classic Pontiac - Cale and his Dad and friends were able to get Cale's 69 GTO Judge back into it's original (solid) condition. Now Cale who is only 17 is cruising to car shows and showing off his Judge. Cale is turning heads as he drives by with this beautiful muscle car. As for Mom and Dad.... they get the glory of seeing a years worth of work completed, an empty wallet and their son's dream of owning a 1969 GTO Judge come true."

CLICK-> Black 1969 Judge convertible, right front view. Wow. The Judge got its name because Pontiac head John DeLorean lifted it from the "Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In" TV show. During the planning stage of the car, it was intended to be a de-optioned racey version of the GTO, and not the loaded model that it became.
