    Well, don't throw it away yet for we have the Impossible Project now! The people behind this project bought and reopened the old Polaroid factory in Enschede, The Netherlands.
    They already remake all different kinds of Polaroid film and recently even introduced 8x10" film!!

    So I'm hoping 5x4" will come out again also.

    I've shot the integral film, and I've heard the buzz about the 8x10 film.... Never thought about them reproducing 4x5!

    You can unscrew the elements of the lens pretty easily to get at any dust. My lens is in excellent shape, and I have to say, I love shooting with it. I bought a whole K camera that someone had listed in war memorabilia for about $75. To attach it to the Speed, I made a lensboard that fit just over the brass threads, and I secured the lens to the board using two 3" rubber gaskets from Home Depot (Toilet bowl parts). Works like a charm for $15. Focus is, of course, GG only.

    The combo, with SG and a polaroid back is really fun. Here are a few shots.

    Thats a Fuji PA-145 for packfilm. That or the Polaroid 405 back are your best (only?) options.
