What exactly is a concourse restoration and are there any specs or books that would give the specifics to ensure one was done right?
Then you definitely don't want Concours. You really can't drive a Councours judged car on the street very often unless you don't mind spending hours underneath the car cleaning it after each outing.I know I want factory appearance along with a car I can drive, not trailer!
You don't want concours then. The nicer you make it the less you will want to drive the Cougar. My G has been driven a total of 120 yards since I completed it lol.Thanks all. Still trying to put together a game plan. Not sure what I want to end up with yet. I know I want factory appearance along with a car I can drive, not trailer!
"I am not really happy with the survivor look as much as I would be with a new car look"No I definately want to drive it, Reason I bought it. I do however want it as nice as I can. Course I don't want to replace the current vynel top. It's already in real good shape. Intior is in good shape cept drivers seat has some cracks in the leather? I know some or most have said leave the car alone and I might, just looking at all the options, I am not really happy with the survivor look as much as I would be with a new car look. But I am itching to drive it right now now start tearing into it. It will stay in the barn either way till at least april when the salt is back off of the roads.
It could also come from saying the word. In french, concours has a silent "s". A final letter "s" is normally silent in french where it seems most often pronounced in english.A concourse is part of an airport.
Concours d'elegance is a French term, signifying an item that is in extremely good condition, capable of competing for a prize.
Often those not capable of knowing the difference confuse the two terms.
