Wow! I was off my computer all day yesterday and missed all the great replies! Thanks for humor and great advice--what a group!!!
Several people asked what the car is. '79 Datsun 280ZX in pristine condition. Donated by a great guy to a wonderful charity for the auction. Definitely less of an antique, I can see, than what a lot of you collect. But your advice is great! I'm landing on: enjoy it as a car, park it carefully, hopefully where I can see it, don't hog spaces, don't park in crowded lots, remember that people will probably give it some respect when parking nearby. And, oh, yeah, enjoy it as a car!
Also, thanks for other advice, like taking it to an appropriate mechanic for a thorough check--all set on that!
And the pictures, LOL.
