CLICK-> Here's Jeff's 1970 GTO Judge launching off the line at the Muncie Dragway. It looks like the front end is off the ground
CLICK-> Red 1970 GTO hardtop featured in this vintage magazine ad. This ad is readable. The ad states, "The quick way out of the little leagues. Every year Pontiac's hard-nose gets tougher on upstarts. Not that we go out of our way to humble amateur performers. We just take the fun of driving very seriously. Like engines. GTO's standard is a 250-horse V-8. But this year there's a high-torque 455-cube V-8 to order, as well as two Ram Airs. So someone's bound to get his feelings hurt. Letting you order a new, low-restriction exhaust should be the final blow. Sorry, guys. But this is the big league. And it's time to make a cut. The Humbler."
CLICK-> Vintage 3 page magazine ad featuring a red 1970 GTO hardtop. The ad says, "This is the way it's going to be, baby. The Humbler." This ad is readable.
CLICK-> 1970 GTO with a 455 featured in this Car and Driver Road Test magazine article. The article starts off with the statement; "You have to give the stylists the most credit for making this GTO attractive."
CLICK-> Baja Gold 1970 GTO convertible owned by Steve DiMare from Kittery, Maine. Steve asks, "The car was originally purchased at Lawless Pontiac in Worcester Mass. I am looking for any info on the dealership, old photos, or better yet a dealer 'badge' - any info would be helpful."
CLICK-> Red 1970 GTO convertible owned by Gary Zink . Gary had this to say, "I just finished a four year "restoration" in which I paid various professionals to do most of the work for me. I don't really have a good place to do this kind of work myself. Anyway, it is a quality car, just not frame-off restored. I have about $45,000.00 in it so far. Unbelievable I know, but I have receipts to prove it. Nearly everything is new or rebuilt. While it looks original on the outside, it doesn't sound original."

Luc had this to say, "Bonjour, je vous ecris du Quebec et plus precisement d'East Broughton dans la Beauce. Je possede yne Pontiac GTO the judge 1970 que je restaure depuis deux ans. Il est blanc avec l'interieur rouge. Il reste des details a terminer mais je peux quand meme rouler avec et c'est tres plaisant!!! J'ai repris la route en juin dernier et je vous envoie quelques photos que j'ai pris lors d'une exposition cette etet au Quebec."
...And I'll attempt to translate this note via my bad memory of French from high school class..., "Hello, I come from Quebec, precisely East Broughton dans la Beauce. (whatever that is) I own this Pontiac GTO The Judge 1970 restored (good?) It is white with a red interior. It is finished in good paint? I took these pictures at a car show (?) in Quebec."
Ken Hutton (firstname.lastname@example.org) saw my poor French translation and sent this note:
Hey I'm a GTO fan from Nova Scotia, Canada, and am currently reading your page. I'll give you a little bit better translation of the e-mail you received from a french writer, so your page viewers can understand a little more about this awesome car.
"Hello, I live in Quebec, but more precisely in East Boughton, in Beauce. My car is a 1970 Pontiac GTO Judge, that I have been restoring for 2 years. It's white with a red interior. It's not quite finished, but I still drive it daily with pleasure :) I put it back on the road last June, and I want to send you some photos I took at a car show last summer in Quebec."
