Most of the molds I saw in Arkansas certainly were rusty and needed work. There were an unbelievable number of them but again, were rather expensive in my mind. Michael has had a lot of years to sell them in and still has tons.

In my mind, it's worth considering why you want to use a mold at all. What's the design , why does it need to be a mold in the first place? Are you planning to alter the mold for originality sake?

Mercedes can do some really tacky stuff about every 20 years. The lower end units are a great example of mediocre design while trying to cast a wider net of sales. Now the gullwing is incredible- not since 1956 have they done something like it.
