Paint care

On these vintage cars with pretty sound paint, what is the best way to polish and keep them looking like new again? Plus what brands of polish and polishers are best?

There is a forum a little further down called "Detailing and Car Care" that is the best place to ask this question. Many of the regular readers of that forum are in the business and know how to tend old paint.

Good luck.

I disagree and I think he has a valid question.

Most benzes are garaged and when they're already newer, there's not much to maintaining them. Vintage, old, aged and weathered cars are a different category.
