The original owner got this car in Kamloops B.C. in Dec 1969 for Christmas. He got the keys in a pair of socks Christmas morning. The Judge was in the garage. He drove that car till 1992 when it was sold to Manuel Devicas who drove the car for years till he died of Cancer, I was given this car with another Judge and it was sold to Rob Severson, the money from the sale was given to Manuel's surviving wife. Rob, has taken excellent care of this Judge, It still has the original stripes on it, second paint job, He has found a correct Service Replacement Block for it, and it has the protecto plate and radio delete option on it. This car is also an Oshawa car."
CLICK-> Tom McQueen is restoring and hot-rodding this black 1970 GTO hardtop. He's got a roll cage and a set of nice looking wheels.
CLICK-> Tom sends us an update on the progress with his Black 1970 GTO restoration. He says that it's almost ready to drive.
CLICK-> Here are some updates to Tom McQueen's 1970 GTO project. Tom explains, "A long term project. It just kind of 'evolved' to this point. It is now a complete custom frame up build (Art Morrison frame). The only piece we are using from the original car is the body (firewall back). It has a 542ci, Procharged, D&D 6 speed, C-5 front, all custom rearend (4-link with a watts), coil overs, billet wheels, etc. Very low (roofline is under 50 inches). All the mods are too much to list here. Shooting for a spring 2009 completion date."
CLICK-> The front end appears to be a one piece fiberglass unit.
CLICK-> That ruler appears to be 48 inches tall. Tom says that the car is at about 52 inches tall. Check out the holes in the Art Morrison frame. Those are for the exhaust. This car is too low to have the exhaust tacked on under the frame.
CLICK-> Another shot of the lowered 1970 GTO. The transmission and engine are higher in this car than normal. Check out how much of the transmission is in the interior. I can almost see the entire thing.
CLICK-> In this shot, you can see the end of the custom frame and the all custom rear end and suspension. Those are some wide tires.
CLICK-> Here is a shot before the body was installed. It's an all custom rearend, 4-link with a watts, and coil overs. Check out the exhaust holes in the frame ahead of the rear. Also checkout the driveshaft hole in the frame.
CLICK-> Blue 1970 GTO convertible owned by Bill. It's a numbers matching YS 400ci engine with an automatic transmission and a 3.55 rear end. The picture was sent in by his buddy, GTO Joe, who owns the 1967 GTO convertible with a 69 400, M-21, and 3.55's. GTO Joe commented, "This picture was taken in September 2002 in Radium B.C. Canada. They hold a very nice 3-day car show every September. Radium is situated in the Rocky Mountains so the cruise is nothing short of spectacular! This cruise was over 800 miles round trip, leaving from our home town of Edmonton, Alberta. The 3.55's are a great highway gear, even with a small 14" tire, as my engine seen redline on several occasions while on this road trip. My 400 Pontiac seems to love 5800 rpm as much as I do! There is nothing that comes close than driving your muscle car on runs like this, very rewarding indeed!"
