I know Don ended up with his '59 Chevy sedan delivery. Sure hope somebody got this one!
OK, that explains it, Mike passed on at a young age. Modelhaus got at least one of his masters / molds, so who knows.....

Mike cast the kit parts in resin, sold them as parts, or as a partial kit (Street Rod version) or as the full stock '11 Chevy prototype kit. Mike died, tragically, early in the morning of the first Sunday in May 1994, as he was loading his van with product, to attend the Hoosier Model Car Association's annual swap meet and contest in Indianapolis IN.
Modelhaus did acquire a few masters from Mike's widow; Jimmy Flintstone acquired Mike's excellent 1966 Chevy II 2dr sedan transkit masters.

And who will let a caster borrow it?
Yes, but who has one to cast?
Got to be somebody!

I did buy the 1952 Studebaker Converteble . I did the research , used the Fred Cady Decals to make the Pace Car from this casting . I think I'll do a bug in Jimmy's ear . Thanx ..
Thanks for clearing that up Art, I knew it was the early '90s but not exactly when. I hate to use Mike's death as a commercial but it is a very strong reminder that if you see something from the after market that you want. Get it you never know when or why it won't be available. After many years regretting not buying Mike's '51 Studebaker conv. when he was alive I found one at Toledo a couple years ago.
