This 1970 GTO “Judge” Convertible is one of only 168 Judge Convertibles built in 1970. The car has the
original 100% numbers matching Ram Air III engine that it was born with and has been carefully restored to “as
new” condition. If you’ve been searching for a no excuse 1970 Judge Convertible, with the original engine,
this is your chance to get a top-notch GTO that will bring home a trophy at the next GTOAA or Pontiac Nationals.
This car started life in New York and was originally shipped to Piehler Pontiac, in Rochester, New York and was
carefully pampered and very well cared for by the first owner.
When the current owner purchased this car, a decision was made to do a full frame-off restoration to give the car a
“fresh” look. The car was completely disassembled and stripped to bare metal. The frame was removed and the
entire drivetrain was rebuilt. The body of this vehicle was gone over from front to back and the body fit is laser
straight and better than new. Once the body was prepared, it was given a fresh coat of the correct Palisade Green
(code 45), using the best modern DuPont base coat clear-coat paint. The frame was also stripped and all chassis
components were replaced and refinished in the correct original factory finishes.
While the engine was out of the car, it was sent out and completely rebuilt. The original 400 Ram Air III engine
(YZ) block was honed and new pistons, rings and bearings installed. The crank was checked and lightly refinished.
The original Ram Air cylinder heads were checked and given a valve job, along with new valves and valve springs.
Everything was reassembled and the entire engine assembly was given a coat of the correct Pontiac silver-blue
No stone was left unturned and the interior was completely redone with nothing but the best of correct materials.
All instruments and gauges were checked for operation and repaired or replaced, if necessary. All wire harnesses
were replaced with new. The restoration on this GTO is 100% “factory correct”, right down to the original
style Firestone tires.
This is a top notch car that is worthy of going to a good home! It will make a “star” addition to any car

Ford buyers appear to love their cars more than customers of any other automotive brand, returning back to the American automaker when it comes time to purchase their next vehicle. According to a study by Experian Automotive, six of the top 10 vehicles for customer brand loyalty wear badges from the Blue Oval. That includes the Ford Fusion (62.4 percent), Ford Edge (57.9 percent), Ford Five Hundred/Taurus (56 percent), Ford Freestyle (51.9 percent), Ford Escape (49.4 percent) and the Ford Focus (47.57 percent).
Other vehicles making up the top 10 include the Toyota Prius (52 percent), Chevy Impala (51.7 percent), Toyota Camry (47.8 percent) and Toyota Corolla (47.56 percent). This brings up an interesting question: With the closing of automotive brands like Saturn and Pontiac, where are those buyers to turn for their next automotive purchase?
Apparently, not back to General Motors. According to Experian, Pontiac owners are most likely to look to the Ford lineup for their next car or truck and Saturn shoppers will switch to Toyota or Honda - not particularly surprising given that Saturn was meant to compete with import brands. Experian predicts that GM's overall market share will fall from 20 percent to about 17.5 percent, with most of the slack being picked up by Ford, Honda and Toyota.
Jim Sharp of Elkhorn, Wisconsin needs a red 1967 Pontiac GTO to make his dad's Father's Day, possibly his last one, something extra special.
Back in the '60s, Jim's dad, Ken, drove a cherry red 1967 GTO to California for a job. He met a girl, got married and decided his wife's 1965 Ford Mustang was more fuel efficient than the Goat and the GTO was sold. As the story almost always goes, Ken has had seller's regret ever since.
Jim always meant to find a 1967 GTO and, with his dad's help, restore it. But life got in the way, time slipped by and Ken was recently diagnosed with esophageal cancer and given about three months to live.
The Detroit Free Press is reporting that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration may expand a recall campaign for faulty brake lamps. The agency is currently looking into complaints that certain 2004-2011 Chevrolet Malibu models as well as some 2007-2009 Saturn Aura sedans may have brake lights that do not illuminate when the driver presses the pedal. Alternatively, the lamps may also illuminate without input from the driver. General Motors recalled 8,000 Pontiac G6 models from the 2005 model year for the same problem, and NHTSA is currently investigating whether to add 550,000 more G6 models built between 2005 and 2009 to the list for the same issue.
In addition, investigators are currently examining 97 complaints from Malibu and Aura owners with the same trouble. If NHTSA adds those models to the recall campaign, more than one million units could be covered. GM, meanwhile, says there have been no accidents or injuries as a result of the problem.
