CLICK-> Sundance Orange 1971 GTO hardtop owned by Ron & Andrea Gray from Corona, California. Ron tells us, "I stumbled across this car sitting in a garage near Barstow, California two years ago. It was all dusty, forgotten, and rusting away something fierce. I've owned A 68, 69, and a 70 Judge in the past and always wanted a 71 since that's the year I graduated high school. Now I'm complete. It sports a complete restoration from the frame up, with no bolts left unturned. Restoring this car cost far more than I ever realized and along with many arguments with the wife over money. I think the final product was well worth the effort. We sure think so! I added the judge package three years ago just for a little change of scenery and because my wife enjoys the stripes at night. My wife & I show it around the local car show circuit here in Southern California. It truly is a hoot to drive and a real head turner."

CLICK-> Plum Crazy Purple 1971 GTO hardtop owned by Danny & Lorie Carson from Florence, Alabama. This was our Picture Of The Week for 9/26/04. Danny tells this story, "My wife Lorie wanted it purple. She hated the green with green vinyl top and green interior. Everything had to be refurbished so... She picked out the paint, interior, wheels, tires, even the spoiler. This is how she would pick the options if we were ordering a new car."
