He was obviously getting his WVO from a chinese place. The exhaust smelled just like fried wontons. It was making me hungry.

I hope you can de-ghetto that poor car. I would try leaving it in the direct sun for a while and then try pulling up a corner of the vinyl covering. If it starts coming off you might be able to warm it with a heat gun and remove it.

Were the old 126s of that era enamel or clear coat? If it was enamel you might be able to save the finish assuming you can get the vinyl and then the adhesive residue off. If the car was clear coat it is probably shot so that is why they put on the vinyl.

Kind of like those HGTV shows where they find an old house that is a total trash dump but the hardwood floors are pristine under the nastiest carpet you have ever seen.
