I have an old Craftsman 12 volt buffer that will run off my cigarette lighter, so I can buff out my truck at the park, beach, etc...and don't have to mess with extension cords. I've had it for many many years and it does a great job for me.

I use a Craftsman 7" grinder/polisher and use one of those cheap generic orbital polishers for wax.
