Rescuing my cast iron pan

So my mother set the oven to self-clean not realizing my Lodge cast iron pan was in there....All the seasoning has been stripped off, the pan is now GREY, not black, and has a fair amount of rust on it. How do I remove the rust? Is it worth arduous reseasoning, or should I just be patient and wait for an affordable vintage piece on ebay?
