Happy to report that the Concord had the TV cable adjusted once more at the trans. shop yesterday and that the car takes off from a stop properly and has great power from low rpm to top end. Very very satisfied with the results for now. 

Last things to do on the list:
Install new starter solenoid.
Repaint blower and wiper motors
Rebuild steering box
Replace poly strut rod bushings with rubber ones (ride is too harsh)
Swap in Addaco front/ rear sway bars
Get stereo hooked up
Install OEM overflow tank
Replace heater core (started leaking a few days ago😭)
Install new carpet
Install package tray, Rally Pak and digital VAM Tachometer
Swap in new rear leaf springs (next Tuesday)
Rob a bank 🏦!!! 😇😇😇

Thanks a lot Ollie. It surely was a difficult path. While there are still several more things to address I've been happy to see the most difficult part completed. Hopefully we'll be able to see each other's cars next year in Kenosha. Fingers crossed.
