Leonard Nimoy's '70 GTO Judge

I found this black and white photo of Leonard Nimoy, aka Mr. Spock, in front of his '70 GTO Judge. We knew Mr. Spock was cool, but this makes him even cooler.

"Just when you thought Spock from Star Trek couldn't get any cooler. Here he is with his set of wheels - a 1970 GTO the "Judge." Check out the license plates that read "GR-RRR!' Imagine riding down the L.A. freeway and looking over and seeing Spock behind the wheel of this muscle car.

The GTO was manufactured by Pontiac from 1964 to 1974. The vehicle was selected as the Motor Trend Car of the Year in 1968. GTO stands for "Grand Tempest Option" - and is one of the fastest cars ever manufactured by Pontiac. Meanwhile, Mr. Spock was First Officer on the Starship Enterprise. Their mission was to boldly go where no man has gone before - and if a muscle car could get you there, all the better."

Say what? Grand Tempest Option???? That is most illogical. Obviously the person who wrote this article is not much a car buff.

Sorry Spock wasn't that cool. That Photo-shopped image has been around for over a decade.

Heres the actual back lot picture of him leaning on his Riv :(
