I wouldn't say that so extremely. What percentage of 30 year
old cars still look nice in their original paint, even if there
is no rust? Pretty low I would think. Even my 6 year old rice
rocket doesn't look as nice as it did when new, and if I could
snap my fingers and have it repainted for free I'd do it
in a second.

Depends on the original scheme. Try to get big dollars for
a car in a "less than modern" colour like Pale Primrose Yellow. (no
offense to owners of original PPY cars out there, I am one myself)
