Downs selling out

I noticed that Downs is selling all of their body molds.  Another one bites the dust.  

Wild Rod and OZE both changed hands several years ago.  Rat's Glass has been trying to sell out for several years.

FWIW, the OZE Rods Shop is building a roller for me.  I'll be 60 in a couple of months, I'm retired and haven't done any car building since the early 70's.  I'm collecting parts, in anticipation of the roller's arrival in May.  I've got some Billet Specialties Vintque wheels, 17x7 front, 20x10 rear, with 225/45 BFGs for the front and 295/45 for the rear.  

Just received my "connect and cruise" engine/trans package from Pace.  I'm keeping it mild with a stock 430hp LS3 and 4L65E.

Also bought a 3.50 geared 3rd member with a true-trac posi from Summit.

I wonder if they would be willing to sell molds for just one car style?
