    Exclamation 1969 Pontiac GTO Judge vs. 2006 GTO, which Goat gets your vo

    Filed under: Classics, Coupe, Performance, Videos, Pontiac


    The Pontiac GTO was perhaps the most iconic muscle car of the '60s and early '70s. With its beefy V8 and color palette screaming for attention, it summarized in a single vehicle everything that made the era so appealing to many young people. Pontiac tried to collect just a few drops of that aura again in the 2000s with a revived GTO, but with decidedly mixed results. The performance was still there with its big V8, but the looks never quite lived up to the powertrain. Now, Generation Gap wants to know which of these Goats is the one to own.

    Things are skewed immediately because the 2006 GTO here is a real ringer. It comes from famous tuner Ken Lingenfelter's collection, and it's a one-off example partially fettled by GM Performance boasting a twin-turbocharged LS2 V8 with a claimed 750 horsepower and a wide-body kit. This Goat definitely isn't what you're going to find just browsing for one to buy in the newspaper. Still, dip the throttle just a little, and this GTO pulls like a freight train. It's enough to turn the two hosts into giggling schoolboys behind the wheel.

    The '69 GTO Judge here is also out of Lingenfelter's collection, but this one is all stock with a 400-cubic-inch (6.6-liter) V8 and a Ram Air hood for a claimed 366 hp. It might not have the unbelievable power of the turbo '06, but it makes up for it with style to spare.

    Which would you rather have sitting in your garage? Check out the video for the hosts' driving impressions to get the full story.Continue reading 1969 Pontiac GTO Judge vs. 2006 GTO, which Goat gets your vote?

    This is a tough choice. A 750 horse monster that looks like a Honda Civic from the side, or a beauty? I pick the beauty. No, horse power, no, beauty, uggh.

    Love the wide body kit. This is how the late GTO's should have come from the factory IMHO.

    that's what I meant by that.......forgot to put better handling on there though. The 06 is all the way around the better car.....even in stock form. Just the benefits of almost 40 years of technology. Sentiment is the only reason to go with the 69 and I can understand that but I want a car I can drive and enjoy driving.

    The late model GTO's have really grown on me over the last few yrs. Not sure if it's because there is no more Pontiac or Trans Ams made anymore or what.

    I want one but it's not high on the important list to get.

    I guess I'm old school but I like the 70 Judge looks and it does perform very well for a 45 year old car.
