CLICK-> Mark walks a bit closer. It's a red 70s Pontiac. Need to open the door and see more...
CLICK-> It's a red 1970 Judge - you can just make out a stripe on the rear fender. It is sitting next to a Starlight Black 1969 Judge convertible. And over on the other end is a Red 1974 TransAm Super Duty. Mark's interested in this red 1970 Judge.
CLICK-> The 1970 Judge does have stripes. The side window has openings rubbed in the dirt to check out the interior.
CLICK-> Mark pushes it out and puts on a set of tires with air in them. What a find!
CLICK-> And loads it up on a trailer. This was a couple of years ago. Mark has since started a frame-off restoration on his find.
CLICK-> Purple 1970 LeMans hardtop owned by Garey Jones from Maryland. Garey tells us about how he got the car and what he has done to it so far, "I had been watching a CraigsListing of this car for quite a while and one day I was bored and went to take a look at it. The listing was rather drab, poor pictures, etc. When I pulled into the driveway, the brain screamed 'you're in trouble now'. The car was a lot better live. Currently it has a 400-4V with a Turbo 400 transmission. I have replaced the interior, bumpers, converted drum to discs in the front and added a 69 Judge spoiler to it. The plans are to turn it into a Jury Clone. There are some great pictures of Jurys on this web site and reading about them and looking at the pictures converted me from an all bright red one. A bit more money to do a Jury, but I think it will be worth it."
CLICK-> In this shot, Garey hasn't installed the painted front bumper yet.
CLICK-> Purple 170 LeMans, left rear view.
CLICK-> Beside the purple 1970 LeMans, looks like Garey has another 70-72 Pontiac project in the driveway.
CLICK-> Darren Schmitt owns this 1970 LeMans wagon. Darren explains, "I bought the car February 2008 because I had only seen one other and it was different. The owner had just brought it up from New Mexico to sell. The original color is Baja Gold. I plan on returning it back to Gold and change the interior color to black. The interior is totally shot from the heat in N.M. The 350 engine is being replaced with a mild 350 with a Summit cam, Quadra-jet 4bbl, and HEI ignition. I will be adding some extra chrome to the body from a Chevelle wagon. The A/C will be removed, who needs it with five windows to put down? It's nick name is 'The Shaggin' Wagon' - my wife doesn't get it."
CLICK-> Brown 1970 LeMans wagon, left rear view.
CLICK-> The engine is a 350ci V8.
CLICK-> Atoll Blue 1970 Judge Ram Air IV hardtop owned by Randy lee Ruud from Lake Elmo, Minnesota. It's an original Ram Air IV car. He has owned it for over 20 years. Randy tells us more, "I located the build sheet on the gas tank during the restoration; Atoll Blue, blue interior, all original 4-speed, 3.90 rear, console, hood tach, hood pins, power steering, wood steering wheel, AM/FM radio, rear speaker, 8-track tape player, gauges, and the Judge option. It was restored in the early 90s. The restoration received NOS fenders, quarters, NOS Judge stripes, rear bumper, NOS wiper motor, floor mats, NOS valances, sill plates, NOS bombshell lights, and front chin spoiler. It has been driven less than 3,000 miles in 20 years. It now has has 72k miles. I was able to drive the car home when purchased, in complete condition. The previous owner drove the car in the country - a rural paper route delivery car. Then he parked it. I just got lucky enough that day. It is a Fremont California factory build. The first owner was going to trade it in on a new 76 Ford Bronco. I purchased it from the second owner."
CLICK-> Atoll Blue 1970 Judge Ram Air IV hardtop, left side view. It has Firestone Wide Oval tires.
CLICK-> Looks nice and straight. Rally II wheels on Judges did not have the chrome trim ring.
