Hmmm, I dunno, Sarge, maybe I was less lucky. We have almost identical
Tornado Red 200 w/o clear coat, but I was extremely displeased with
Meguiar's clay. Indeed it leaves a mirror smooth surface (tactile), but
I gave me an ugly spider web. I spent a lot of time taking it off with
Meguiar's scratch remover.

Meguiar's clay might work on a clear coated car coz clear coats are
usually hard as glass. 
I compared my old '85 5000s in dark grey metallic with clear coat ("Wet
Asphalt" hue) that my buddy owns nowadays and my current Tornado Red '89
200 side by side.
The former haven't seen waxing (or any other paint care for that matter)
for years, the latter gets  cleaned, buffed, sealed and waxed every
Their paint condition looks alike. 
As much as I like pure pigments, I'd probably never buy another non
clear coated car, just too damn mainentanance-intensive.
