On a car that age, I'd clay it, use a random orbital (Porter-Cable 7424) with a fine-cut polishing compound (Pinnacle Fine Swirl Remover) & a light cutting pad (Lake Country Orange), apply a synthetic wax (I really like Mother's FX or Zaino) & top it off with a pure carnauba (AutoMagic #15, as an example). Depending on the condition of your clearcoat, you might need a more aggressive polish & pad combination to get the light scratches out.
