America's 'Most Polluted' Lake Finally Comes Clean

Great Britain's Bentley took a chance in 2003 when it went "downmarket" with the Continental GT, a sporty coupe, and reaped the rewards when the brand's sales quintupled. The coupe and other Continental derivations that followed helped change Bentley's stodgy image. Other models in this line include the Continental GTC, a soft-top convertible, and the Continental Flying Spur, a four-door sedan. All Continental body styles also come in high-performance Speed versions, and the coupe now adds an even more powerful Supersports variant.

Sounds good. Cleanup and restoration can be done but tends to be difficult and expensive. It is better to prevent pollution in the first place.
