Wow, 27 years in high school. I salute your determination. Best of luck in getting that diploma. LOL

Seriously, I have been following and enjoying this build. Not every project needs to be a 100 point resto to be interesting.

My garage:
2018 300 5.7 - daily driver
2006 Sierra 4.8 - backup vehicle and sometimes hauler
1969 BBO Javelin 390 T10 - my neverending project

Haha... been to a few colleges since then! Seriously... Thanks a lot. I just like the car and I like the reaction the car gets from people at a gas station or a car show or from people that remember me from high school and are really surprised I still have it! I just wanted this car to have some slight upgrades but still have an unassuming mostly stock look. So far the response has been good from people who have seen it up close and even though its still going to get driven a lot... I wanted this to be done at a high level. When I drive it again... I want the first driving experience to feel like I have a new car again. They'll be some tuning, tweaks and adjustments for a while but that's all par for the course considering how much work had been done. As much as I am doing this for myself... and I am doing this for myself... ha... I am doing it for other people too. My hope is that this Concord causes a few people to buy some more of these old Concords before they're gone. My idea is that the Concord will be the last semi-slightly collectible Malaise Era AMC and people will really be kicking themselves that they didn't get a nice clean one while they were still around. They are a car that defines an era of my life in the city that AMC and I are both from but its also a tribute to all the fun AMC/VAM/IKA/AIM people I have met along the way. I consulted with a lot of people over the years over a lot of different aspects of my car.. from the engine... to the body and paint work... the transmission.. the suspension.. the brakes... I have reached out to several people here over the years... badgering some with emails and text messages and phone calls to no end... and I while I cannot thank all those people here individually... they should know who they are and also know that their individual efforts are a part of this car too. I am thankful for all my friends and family who have helped me and supported me over the years. Without them this car would not be coming together today.

Hello everyone. Not much to say. Just a few pictures of the parts I want to install in the future. I have had these for a while now. The non-AC package tray and the pod are from a 70's Gremlin/Hornet. The gauges are from a Spirit GT/AMX.

Thanks a lot Anthony! Sorry. I just saw your comment now. I appreciate it. Your work on your son's Concord is what inspired me.

Can't wait to see it outside with the sun shinning on it. Keep up the great work on a very cool ride.

Thank you very much. I can't wait to see it in the sun too! It's been a long time waiting. I've owned the car for 27 years. I've been planning this for a long long time. I need to get it on the road!
