Indeed their departure from the hobby will leave a void. Won't affect me too much as I mostly make mine into customs. The small trim parts and stock hub caps and such aren't that important to me so Don and Carol's well deserved retirement won't be a show stopper here. A few I have staged in the "to do" area of the shop
