Old house vynal or not

Hey all im residing my 1860s house and im trying to decide what i want to do i figured id get some other opinions.

Heres the deal the house has vynal siding but has the old wooden clapboard siding underneath. Ive ripped about 1/3 of the vynal off and discoverd that the wood siding under it is in good shape and im thinking about ditching the vynal all together. Now i have no issues with vynal but i take issue with this installation, it being installed over the clapboard creates a wall void and in the section i took down i found multiple paper wasp nests, i also feel like the house is hiddin and wont be able to spot other potential problems under the vynal in the future.

So i guess im asking what would you guys do? Scrape and paint or put up new vynal? Ive included a couple pics had to compress them so quality may not be the best..
