I know what a Key Grip is (besides the black plastic on my car key, 
ggg), but what is an AD or AC?

We already know they are not paying for our time, just mileage or such. 
I am busy working or I would go, only about 35
  minutes from my house. You bring up some good points I hadn't considered.

I do have a non-operating 64 700 4 door with blue interior, but it is a 
custom interior. Seats and door panels. It could not substitute for 
Patrick's Lakewood.
