I believe this is the Judge i went and looked at last year. It is actually one of the first run of 2000 and believed to be a press or fleet car. It showed low miles unfortunately, the trunk pan and frame behind the rear wheel humps was GONE do to rust from being buried in Crap.

The current 'custodian' (I should say criminal) who has owned this car for the pat 25 years says he can't get to it 'any time soon'. Let's see: he's 25 years older, 25 years even less motivated (if he ever was, and it appears he never was), and the car as it sits is now in very sorry shape needing extensive repair. My prediction: the car will continue to rot until it's unrestorable, or the current owner will die soon enough for someone who cares to actually obtain the car and do it justice. In my opinion, the current owner is criminal in his negligence of this once proud Judge.

I like yours better. It's not full of rodent poop.

Can anyone tell from the license plate what state this 1969 judge was registered in

The article states that the owners do not want the public to know where this 1969 Judge is located. There is a picture of the front license plate that may be a clue when this car was purchased in 1989 by the current owner.

Typical Hoarder mentality: "My stuff is priceless even though I've let it rot into junk. Too pricesless for all the bad people out there who might try to restore and save my treasure. IT'S MINE! And no one can have it but ME! " I'd like to tie that moron to my bumper and drag him thru his own manure pile.

But GeeTee, thats one of them $100,000 GTO's he saw on the auction... May as well cross out another VIN from the Judge registry, i'd venture to guess everything from the pans and frame down is either rusted solid or swisscheese.

Yes, absolute junk. Manure is highly corrosive, much more so than plain old dirt. The thing that just kills me is the smug, arrogant, almost bragging nature of the current owner....he's proud of himself. Un-be-lievable.
