1967 Pontiac GTO; 1970 Pontiac GTU "The Judge"

from Jason Lavers, in the State of Maine: "I’m very fond of Pontiacs. Here are my GTO’s. 
67 GTO: 53,000 original miles. Loaded with options, vinyl roof, AC, AM-FM, PS, Power front disc brakes, 8 track, 4spd, console, vacuum gage, hood tach, buckets with power driver, headrests, and passenger recline, tilt wood wheel, red fender liners. I also have 2 sets of wheels, the Rally 1s and the black steelies with dog dish hub caps. Came originally with the Rally 1s, but I like the subtle black steelies with the redlines. Factory Montreaux Blue color.

"70 GTO Judge: 126K miles. “The Judge” package, Ram air, PS, PB, 8 Track, AM radio, Formula steering wheel, 4 spd. Just finished the frame off a year ago, took me 5 years. I did everything except the red paint and body work. Factory Cardinal Red color. Found 2 build sheets during disassembly, lots of documentation on this car.
That’s 3 vehicles I have with 8 tracks. The 79 K20 has an original one too"-
