CLICK-> Burgundy 1970 GTO convertible, front end view with hood open. That's a 455 in there.
CLICK-> Burgundy 1970 GTO convertible, right front view. The cover that you put over the convertible top when down is black even though the top is white. That's because the cover is the same color as the interior - not the same color as the top.
CLICK-> Burgundy 1970 GTO convertible, left rear view. The top is white.
CLICK-> Burgundy 1970 GTO convertible, right rear view. Her top is white too.
CLICK-> Burgundy 1970 GTO convertible, interior view. That is a Custom Sports steering wheel. It also has power windows and power door locks.
CLICK-> Vintage photo of Jon Burdett's first car, a Gold 1970 GTO hardtop, that he purchased in 1981. Jon tells us more, "The license plate read, "7T GOAT." It was fully loaded: 400cid, th350 automatic transmission, sport wood wheel, air conditioning, power windows, power brakes, power radio attenna, rear window defogger, remote trunk release, and those were the original Goodyear Polyglass G70-14's. I absolutely loved this car, and wish I still had it. I sold the car in 1988 with 179k on odometer and for $1000 more than I paid. I also have the 1969 Matador Red Judge on this site. I still have that one!" You can see pictures of his Judge with the Advanced Picture Searcher loaded with year=1969, model=Judge, and owner=burdett.
CLICK-> Cardinal Red 1970 Judge hardtop owned by Rick from Allentown, Pennsylvania. Rick tells us, "I finally realized my dream of owning a 70 GTO! Finding a Judge only made it better! It's all original & matching, except for Hedman Hedders and fresh paint. The engine was recently rebuilt, balanced, and blueprinted."
CLICK-> Rick continues, "Automatic transmission is the only downside for me, but as you as you can tell from the pictures, the ladies love'em no matter how you shift'em"
CLICK-> One final shot of Rick's Cardinal Red 1970 Judge.
CLICK-> This is the BEFORE picture of Lance Armstrong's 1970 GTO convertible. It's before TLC's "Overhaulin" redid it. The "Overhaulin'" show first aired the night of 11/30/04. It was originally owned by Jerry Stillman (pictured) who sold it to Sheryl Crow. She gave it to Lance Armstrong. The Stillman family is friends with the Crow family. Sheryl rode in the car many times when she was younger. We've got a whole set of pictures of this GTO being overhauled. Click on the Parked in the 1970 Lot link under the image to see them.
CLICK-> Here's Lance Armstrong's 1970 GTO sitting in the Overhaulin garage were it will be re-created in only 7 days. During the Overhaulin show "the owner gets tricked and the car gets tricked out". They usually trick the owner (mostly regular non-celeberty people) into believing that their car was stolen with the help of a family member or friend. The car gets restyled and updated by the large Overhaulin team.
CLICK-> The BEFORE interior in Lance Armstrong's 1970 GTO. The Overhaulin show is a chance for aftermarket automotive suppliers to showcase some of their latest products as well as demonstrate some of the latest trends in modified car restorations.
CLICK-> Chip Foose (right) is the main designer on the Overhaulin show. Here, Sheryl Crow examines the drawing that Chip created of what he intends Lance Armstrong's 1970 GTO to look like in the end.
CLICK-> Courtney Hansen flexes her muscle in respect for the original muscle car - the GTO. She is a co-host of the Overhaulin show. Chip is trying to show Courtney his plans for Lance Armstrong's 1970 GTO.
CLICK-> The Overhaulin A-Team starts by completely disassembling Lance Armstrong's 1970 GTO. You can see a guy from Butler Performance under the hood. He supplies the new 400hp 400ci Pontiac engine.
