Recommendations on Orbital Buffers

Thinking about polishing my car and it's so big that I am thinking about buying an orbital buffer. Any recommendations on which one to get?

Well if you want the best then it would be the Porter Cable 7424.

be careful using an orbital on your car, if you don't know what you're doing you can do some serious damage, it's very easy to screw up with an orbital.
