                     23.   An improved low-modulus, flexible thermoplastic molding and extrusion                           
              composition having a flexural modulus of about 140,000 or below as determined in                             
              accordance with ASTM D790, comprising;                                                                       
                     (a) about 20% by weight of a polyalkylene terephthalate resin;                                        
                     (b) about 15% by weight of an aromatic polycarbonate resin;                                           
                     (c) about 60% by weight of a substantially amorphous copolymer resin comprising a                     
              butadiene based core-shelled multiphased composite interpolymer resin;                                       
                     (d) about 5% by weight of a mold release agent or a stabilizer.                                       

                     26.  An improved low-modulus, flexible thermoplastic molding and extrusion                            
              composition consisting essentially of:                                                                       
                     (a) a substantially crystalline linear thermoplastic polyester resin composition;                     
                     (b) an amount of a component capable of reducing the flexural modulus of (a) to not                   
              substantially greater than about 140,000 psi, said component comprising a substantially                      
              amorphous copolymer resin.
