Different mindset, too.  There's an enthusiast owner of a 280SLC in the
village - he's _fanatical_ about the bodywork but the engine looks like
no one has laid a finger on it since WWII.  It's a beautiful image until
he lifts the bonnet - caked oil and dirt everywhere.

OTOH - you can touch anything in my engine bay without getting your
hands dirty.
