"Barn Judge" is back on the road again...

...after 35 years, it is a fully functional Muscle Car survivor...still wearing it's original paint and interior....all mechanical components are still the ones it left the factory with and it runs like new...

...a big thanx to Doug and Brad Dorn of Dorns AutoCraft in New Castle Indiana for bringing the long dormant Judge back to life in such a short period of time

...it still needs a new set of tires and a couple of very minor things, but it is 99.9% of the way home

...and yes, it will remain a "survivor" as long as it resides in my family

Very nicely done.
It went to the right place.

(Just as long as the collection is the result of honest, hard work and legal endeavors!)

sorry, no intrigue here ...just 5 decades of working, mostly self employed, investments, a working wife and lotsa luck...I have been playing with classic cars since 1975

...my first "classic" purchased in 1975, a 61 Vette with a blown engine...paid $2100....

Great story and it does a Pontiac heart good to see such a nice car in the right place. Are you going to put a few miles on it after new tires and a good going over??

Glad to hear it!

I was mainly joking about the exciting chance of you being a Gone in 60 Seconds type collector!
