Another question about Black Paint.

Ok, This may have been discussed in this forum before, but I haven't seen it yet. What I'm wondering is what type of paint had the best buffed out black. I'm not talking about brand. I'm just trying to find out if old lacquer, acrylic enamel, single stage or even Base/coat clearcoat had the best depth in black.

It's probably a question better answered by older painters. I've heard that rubbed out/buffed black lacquer looks better than newer Base/coat clearcoat black.

I'm asking this because the next time I paint an all black car, I'm going to cut/buff the entire vehicle, and try to get the best glass finish as possible. If I should stick with Base coat/Clear coat then just let me know. So yeah, I'm asking for a bit of a history lesson.
