Default Old Paint Wax and Buff

Need some help with my 66 Bonneville. Mostly original paint and I would like to give it a nice buff and wax. I have an electric buffer and need a suggestion on compount/wax to use. Paint is Aquamarine and is mostly oxidized. Suggestions on compound/wax would be appreciated!

You can start off with a meguires 80, it'* a light cut polish and should clean up the surface good. Then use some Meguiers NXT wax.

Decent low cost solution. Megs products work well.
