Actually, I could easily qualify to polish this car. I have polished plenty in my lifetime. I think the point of most of these comments is yes, there are some great innovations and engineering in the car. But a designer/owner needs to know when to stop. Garish chrome, mirrors, candy paint, bright lights...somehow, I don't think when this award was dreamed up in 1970 it was meant to be an indicator of how much money you can sink into a vehicle in order to get recognition.
Don't get your undies too much in a twist, I like Metallica over opera and DaVinci over Jackson Pollock everyone has their preferences on art and cars. When the two are combined the passion runs pretty high.
