Below is information provided by various interested parties.

The special paint car was painted a color that is close to 69 Camaro Rally Green, ordered by a Florida dealer to pay tribute to Florida's state symbol the Alligator. It is probably close to being fully restored

One of the board members from Classical Pontiac had an interesting accounting, as follows: gmman Bio 8/10/05 8:30 There was a Green 71 Judge convertible here in Fla back in the 80s which I looked at and was purchased for $750 dollars by someone named Earl but the car did not have the numbers matching engine. The previous owner pulled the engine to restore the car and never got around to restoring the car. He drove it with another 455 engine and sold it to Earl Ostericher who advertises in Hemmings. Earl had the car for sale around 1988 and sold it to a person on the west coast for $8,000. The previous owner still has knowledge of the original 455HO engine but the current owner wants to buy the engine back for a cheap price. This same owner sold another numbers matching 71 Judge convertible White for over $100k but was real cheap on his offer on the engine which still resides in Florida. Go figure

Update from a web veiwer8/23/05: Hello Steve, I have seen your post on Performance Years Website for the 71 Judge Conv and I wanted to provide you with some updated info. First, car number 3, the picture you have linked/displayed is actually a 70 GTO Conv with Judge stripes. I know this because I was the show coordinator and have other pictures from other angles that can verify this. Also the car was owned by a friend of mine. Secondly, Car # 14 is in Georgia, I have seen it multiple times, I thought it was to be at the GTO Nats this year but it was not. The car is should be or 95% done a frame off resto, the last time I saw it; it looked very, very nice. Unfortunately I do not have any pics of the car or have the VIN for it. I know it is real because I remember the car being for sale about 5 yrs ago up in New York or the North East and then going to this guys shop and seeing the car. If I can be of further assistance, please let me know. Steve: So I have removed the info on car 3, and listed 14 as in GA, hopefully a pic will turn up soon.

Uncle Judge from Performance Years board had this: Hey Steve, I am fairly certain that the Cardinal Red car (#10) is the one that Steve Ames bought out of my town in the late 80's or very early 90's. The car had been in the same family for years and was passed down from a Factory Zone Rep. That one was an original Red car with a TH400. Kevin at Ames confirmed this to be true. 8/23/05
