Mold-A-Rama Nostalgia

Woah, hold on their St. Petersrbug Times, you're given us a major case of nostalgia. Remember "Mold-A-Rama" machines? You'd put a few dollars in and the machine would make a wax toy in front of your eyes. Apparently Florida has more of these machines left than any other state, and The Times profiled that state's last remaining Mold-A-Rama salesman Tim Striggow. Even though a new Mold-O-Rama machine hasn't been manufactured in over 40 years, Striggow still services the remaining few in Florida and sells older ones. 

His most popular machine? Apparently it's the tiger machine at Miami Metrozoo.
