#A1801224 - Pre-Order - expected in the 3rd quarter of 2024 (updated 6/30/24) is the last Ram Air Judge to be ordered. In 1:18 scale is an Orbit Orange 1971 Pontiac GTO Judge that was ordered after the production cut off date, in a color that wasn't offered and arrived with a black grille and bumper!

ACME will be producing 600 of these cars worldwide so don’t miss out on your chance to own a piece of Pontiac history. It will have all of the features that you have come to expect from ACME, such as an opening hood, doors and trunk, a wired and plumbed engine bay, a well detailed interior and chassis plus much more.

 In the winter of 1970, a Mr. Wayne Hagen caught wind of some rattling news: the Judge was retiring. In this case, no political figure was stepping down, but rather Pontiac’s sports car of the same name. “He wanted one his whole life but couldn’t swing it financially,’ recalls his wife, Mary. “Realizing this would be his last chance to get one, he figured he should get moving.”

In April of 1971, the lovebirds swung by Hansord Pontiac in Minneapolis, only to be greeted with a terrible announcement: they were too late. “The sales staff said sadly we had missed the boat in getting in an order,’ recalls Mary. Officially, the Judge was discontinued in February and here it was nearly a month later. “We told them we weren’t interested anymore and started to leave,’ said Mary. “Before we could get to the door, they said they would call up Pontiac and ask if they’ll make one more.”

Further pressing their luck, the Hagens had a special request: the car needed to be painted in their favorite color, Orbit Orange. “We had to have one in that color, we just loved it,’ gushed Mary. Easier said than done, that vibrant hue was no longer available for the 1971 model year. Still, eager for a sale, the dealership put in a special paint request to make it happen.
