Well, the old boy's cleaning her up. A good power washing removed an amazing amount of the dirt and grime, while a Brillo pad removed what he called "surface rust."
The sad part is that he wants to turn it into a hot rod with dual exhausts and who knows what else. For shame! I told him to be true to the period and find another car to use as a hot rod. This is a luxury car. I'm sure he and his friends will come at me with guns blazing, but that's their problem.
