A friend sent me the pictures. At the same time I was looking at a really nice 1968 GTO convertible for $8,500. I passed on it too. Strike two!"

CLICK-> Scott Pelley owns this Carousel Red 1970 Judge hardtop. Scott had this to share, "I got the car in 1988 for $300. After the military and two kids, I finally started working on it. That was about three years ago. It has a 455 four-speed and a 3.55 limited-slip rear end. It's a Friendly Local Mustang GT Eater! I did all of the work on the car myself. The original color wass Cardinal Red but there is just something about an orange Judge."

CLICK-> Take a look at this Black 1970 GTO convertible! It is owned by Cato and Lill Halvorsen from Norway! Cato tells us more, "This car was bought from Trondheim in 2006. This is a original triple black goat. The earlier owner must a have drunk something (to change the interior to white). The the white interior will being changed in the upcoming winter. The new color would be in red. This because I love black goats with red interiors. All the harnesses under dash and engine are new. The car need a new paint job, but it's have to wait a couple of years. I must finish the 71 convertible first."

CLICK-> Black 1970 GTO convertible, left rear view in Norway. That reminds me of a joke called "Swede in a Pub". A Swede was in a pub in Norway and a regular customer suggested to him: - "I'll give you $200, if you let me smash ten beer bottles on your head." The Swede thought for a while and finally agreed, partly because of the peer pressure. The Norwegian smashed the first bottle on the Swede's head, then the second and so on, but he stopped after smashing nine bottles. "So, when are you going to smash the tenth bottle?," asked the Swede. "I am not a total idiot," the Norwegian replied, "then I would have to give you that $200."
