car of the night; cruisin' around in my gto
by Michele Christopher

Tonight, by request, we bring you the Pontiac GTO.

I’ve picked out a very specific GTO to write about: the 1969 GTO, model called The Judge.


I searched high and low for a black version of this car, and came up with only two or three. It seems most of them were done up in Sunkist Orange. Normally, I don’t do orange, but somehow the color looks hot on this car. Hell, this is the kind of car you could roll out in some hideous shade of puke green and it would still look good.

If cars were guys, the ‘69 GTO would be the guy your mother warned you about; the one you are not supposed to look at, let alone talk to, because one stare from him would turn your chastity belt to dust. Yea, if this car were a guy, I would be standing in front of it, leaning down low, wearing the lowest cut shirt I own whispering something about checking the dipstick.

Except it’s gotta be the hardtop, not the convertible. Convertibles are nice on some cars, but when you are riding a bad boy like this, soft just won’t do.


If I ever rode in one of these I think I would remember. So we are gonna go with a "Turtle has never been in one of these cars" day. They happen folks. Belive it or not, there are some cars I have never been in. I researched the specs and hey hell, it must have been cool. And some of your email suggestions make me feel like I missed half of the world. The wind passed me by and I didn't stop to breathe in.

Hey, dude. It happens.


Thats a '65 Pontiac GTO. Looks pretty fucking mean if you ask me. That looks like something you drove teenagers around with in high school while seeing how loud the engine is. Trying to remember how to unhook a bra on the girl next to you while she is drunk on one beer. Cheap date and a cool car. If only you could get your dick to suck itself you wouldn't need anything else.

Sometimes you feel sad missing a car like this. But this car really looks like something that would pull the diaper of a newborn as it was just warming up and tear the baby teeth out of a 5 year old as it blew by. It looks like a car that someone would be in after they slammed a six pack and the only thing on their mind was seeing the next show. Or going to Burger King. You make the call 'cause I don't fucking know.

This is the kinda car that would move things and ask the world to watch cause it was only going around once and you better pay fucking attention cause it wasn't gonna do it again no matter how many fucking times you asked. It lived for the moment.

Hey dude, that's the feelling I get. For all I know it could have a pussy engine. But the Ramones mention it a lot so it's probably a kick ass car. So I'll just go with them and agree. Cool looking car.


Keep your email suggestions coming on all cars, all songs, all records and all bands. Cause we are having fun with this and we hope you are too.

I shall dupe my comment in the new place (love the new place BTW)

The '65 Goat is my all-time favorite muscle car. Someday I plan to own and restore one and paint it an extra, insanely deep and bright metallic red. And perhaps cruise high schools until I get arrested. :)


The 65 is far better than the 69, to my eyes. I never have liked the hips and bumps they put on cars in the late 60s and 70s.

Straight beltline all the way.


The Judge is such a beautiful machine -always my favorite


All 69 judges were that weird shade of orange, I think. It was called "carousel red".
"The Judge" was supposed to be a cheaper version of the by then rather fancified and optioned up GTO.
It was meant to compete with Plymouth's cheap and cartoonish Road Runner.
I'd rather have a Road Runner. Something about the sheer taxicab crudeness of those cars made them very appealing. That, and the optional Hemi which trumped anything Pontiac was selling in those days....


I've taken rides from strangers [hot ones I was pretty sure I could take in a fight, but still] just to ride in their cherry red '67 coupes. Sigh.
It was pretty much like what Michele said about the '69 Charger: I should have tossed the one slobbering wreck and made out with his car instead.


(I meant to post this on the '70 Mustang post, but got lost looking for its missing image. 'Doh.)
