NICE! That may be the best-looking AMC I've ever seen...

That just looks soo wrong, yet soo right. I would NEVER expect to see a concord with rolling stock like that. Any info on the car?

Isn't it amazing what filling a wheelwell does for the look of a car?

We're trying to track down the owner and get info on it. All I know is it's an80 or newer Concord Sedan (the same body as my Hornet with a Spirit nose) 2-door. The factory bumpers are aluminum and even the wagons weigh under 3,000 Lbs so it should be a pretty light car.

I hate you... Too bad I'm too poor to afford that thing, let alone the restoration. My grandfather sold his original 68 AMX 390/4-Speed (that he bought in 68) at an auction over the weekend for $45,000.

Pfft. There's stuff closer.


I just choose not to afford it right now. I'll strip the Hornet, play with the Concord for a bit, and see what happens in a year or so.

Philly has a few AMC's for sale..

The 1971 Matador is the one I find most interesting, cheap too.
