19. Pontiac GTO Judge
Muscle cars started out as affordable performance machines with lots of power at reasonable prices. However, due to the high demand, some models started to get more expensive. Soon, there was a need for a budget-friendly muscle car for the younger buyers who wanted a fast car, but couldn’t pay much.
And the Plymouth Roadrunner was the perfect example of such a model. It was budget-friendly, fun and fast. Because Pontiac wanted a similar car, in 1969 the company presented the GTO Judge. The Judge quickly became a legend in its own right.
The first reason is that it took its name from the popular TV show. And secondly, it was a bright red muscle car with a big spoiler and funky “The Judge” graphics all over it. The third reason is that the GTO Judge wasn’t slow, producing 366 HP with its four-speed transmission. Available from 1969 to 1971, the Judge always represented a top of the line model, which makes it desirable today.
