1970 Pontiac GTO Jury Car Chase Through Calgary by FastLaneIllustration 1970 Pontiac GTO Jury Car Chase Through Calgary by FastLaneIllustration
Here's my latest painting. It's a 1970 Pontiac LeMans GTO Jury being closely chased by a 1976 Pontiac Catalina police car down 9th Avenue of downtown Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The year is 1977, and I took a lot of time and research to make sure that it's painstakingly accurate to how the real life corner of 9th avenue and 4th street looked in that time period. The 'Jury' package for the Pontiac Lemans like the one portrayed in this painting was a trim that was exclusive to Stampede Pontiac, a dealership here in Calgary. There are a few new experimentations in this piece as well. For example, this is the first piece that i've ever had a tire blow out in, as well as little effects like the muzzle flash on the policeman's gun as he fires out the window. If you're local to calgary, I think you'll really appreciate this piece... if not, I hope you enjoy it anyway. Here's A Link that provides a view of what this street corner looks like today: [link] .

not exactly. the gto jury wasn't even offered in all of canada. it was only offered as an exclusive trim from a dealership here in calgary. it was a beefed up lemans offered as an affordable alternative to the expensive gto judge. it was a cheap thrills gto judge so to speak. the judge existed along side the jury, but the jury was launched just to make a few extra bucks at the dealership

I never knew about the Jury! I've always joked Plymouth should have done a The Jury version of the Fury and Mercury a Cougar Executioner. At least now I know a Jury exists!

does that friend happen to be someone named Kyle (aka Racer5353 here on deviantart?) He's the one who commissioned it. I know him personally. he lets me drive his family's 1970 mustang sometimes

Oh damn hahah I know him too! Not as well, just from a couple offhand chats here on dA, but I've seen the toys he's got, he's a lucky bastard, lol. Seems like Calgary is one hell of a place that I should check out some day

yeah its a pretty interesting place. we have a decently sized car culture here. Although the city itself is getting too big. The city is 1.2 million people. really overwhelming, as well as a pain when you consider traffic. to make matters worse for traffic, we are known as having some of the worst timed traffic lights in north america, so it's hard to hit a steady stream of green lights. but overall its an okay place i guess. better than any other major city elsewhere in canada if you ask me.

Yeah, my town is all of 13,000 people spread out over more square miles than I can count, haha. That's nice though, because it gives me plenty of wide open road, haha. Except there are too many nice corners, I need to invest more money in decent suspension for my cars as opposed to power goodies because I spend more time cornering than anything else, lol

lucky you. i wish i lived in a small town. especially with all the redneck crap we do like setting off airbags in pumpkins, and dry ice stuff. in small towns, people usually turn a blind eye to redneck fun, and sometimes even encourage it haha.
