I'm new here and just thought I'd post a few photos of my dad's 1970 GTO Judge and my 01 ZX3.

He's the original owner and the car is all original, completely unrestored. He's wanting to restore it someday, but he's also talked about selling it. Who knows what he'll decide to do.

It's a sweet car and if I had the grip, I'd love to buy it! The sound when it's running is simply untouchable!

Anyway, here are some shots of it along with my car (prior to the custom paint:









And here's my car AFTER the custom paint. It's a 2001 ZX3. I designed and sprayed the custom paint myself...my first paint job ever after a 14 week class...









Let me know what you all think...good or bad.

YNOT:

I like to see Fords all black and blue after they have been around GTOs. You obviously know your way with a spray gun. Great detail.
Concerning your Father's Judge I think he should enter it in a local car show, preferably a Pontiac show, as is. I bet he will be pleasently surprised. His car looks rare, unmolested and mean.

Well the JUDGE is simply awsome and probably my favorite color Judge.

Now, all I need to know about the Ford, is it Rice or a Tuner? Just kidding man, great to see a family of car guys and the paint is nice!

Dude! If you did all that after just taking a class, and took that information to the spray booth and applied it, then you have a future in automotive painting. Nice work indeed! :) :)

I think the Goat is awesome, the Ford is probably a sensible choice, your first new car? and I think your painting skills are already on a par with many folks who do it professionally. I'd say you have a bright future in that business and you will be a very hard act to follow as your skills improve. If your skill with an airbrush is even close, you're going to have a fleet of Goats if you want them.

It's not rice in my opinion and I don't consider it a tuner as I've done nothing to the motor aside from an air intake because i drive it everyday. I call it a "New Age Hot Rod". I'm a fan of the old school muscle cars, but I'm of the younger generation so I'm more in touch with the mini truckin and sport compact car scene.

Believe me I can still appreciate a sweet muscle car as well as a restored classic...I just like the newer "tuner" style cars.

It's a sports compact with a custom paint job and a minor mod, 'Tuner to be' so to speak. 22 inch wheels like a Conestoga Wagon, every sticker you can find, even from things you don't recognize, multi-shelf spoilers, split single exhaust with 3lb. coffee can resonators, heiroglyphics, mega dollar body mods the car has no hope of using....mods for the sake of bragging rights rather than any constructive benefit would probably put in in either Show Car (if that's it's use), or Rice category if it's a driver. Tuning, wrenching, modding for constructive benefit, with a plan, and practicality, bring it on, it's a Street Machine. JMHO...

Nice rides.
Remember - there's no replacement for displacement - but there's a RWD v8 focus (thought it was a 5.0, but don't remember for sure) driving around Detroit somewhere...

Very nice Judge! And the paint work is fab no matter how long you have been doing it, but for your first it is incredible. Maybe you sell your services to some on this board?
