    . Hi y'all

    I have started collecting the m2 autothentics, and muscle cars mostly mopars, and some gm and ford in 1/64th scale. I think the detail and operating doors and hoods is really cool for this size. Their autohaulers truck series is pretty boss too. I got to have the hurst shifters hauler

    Anybody else into these?

    Matt

    Its been awhile before i could get to taking pix, but heres my collection. My wife got me the Cuda race car hauler, Hurst shifters truck, and the ford truck with Ford Torino as christmas gifts.

    I'd like to get the Edelbrock auto haulers truck, and the E-T wheels auto hauler truck, and possibly the limited edition SEMA car carrier. with ZL-1 camaro drag car and mustang cobrajet drag car.

    i am going to pick up the wild card 68 Cuda Hemi drag cars soon. since they have an Olds 442 casting, I'd like to see em make a Hurst Olds too.

    i think thses are very nicely detailed models for their size and price. i collected 1/18 scale but those are just too friggin big. i still have them, but these stack nice, and in the cubes they are easy to keep clean and dust free.

    my Dad collects the ones they make from the '50's era. They are a lot like the Johnny Lightning's. They are detailed for the scale

    I'm not too big of a fan of the M2 auto lift series, as they are in blister packs. I prefer the M2 cars in the cubes, but I am a sucker for mustangs as much as mopars. I saw this 50th anniversary mustang auto lift setup at Walmart, with a 428 super cobra jet mustang, and a matching color 351 Mach 1 mustang, I just had to get it. The yellow green color is pretty cool too. Not quite lime green, or lemon twist, but more of a curious yellow color.

    I want to take these out of the package soooo bad, but wont because they will just get dusty. it would be cool if somebody started making clear cubes tall enough so these could be removed from the blister pack and have a cover put over them.

    Yep, i got a bunch of diecast models besides these. My hot wheels collection alone is probably 400 cars, then my HO slot cars, my 1/18 diecast, and now M2 diecast. I also have plastic models.

    One day when the kids are all grown and moved out, one bedroom will be dedicated to an office with my car collection along the walls, and the other bedroom will be a guest room. As such a lot of this stuff is packed away right now.

    Those are pretty cool. I'd like to fine the hemi cudas and the 440 cuda. I have mostly 70 and 71 cudas, but mt boys have some of the others. I do have the Plymouth Cuda car hauler, too. Havn't seen the others though.

    Check your local walmart. I just went to walmart to search for the 440 cuda and 383 road runner in orange there. I got them today, it was a fresh new box of M2s. also picked up the blue cougar XR7. Walmart has the M2 autohaulers too.

    The Hemicudas i had to buy off ebay. Could never find em locally. They are the M2 wildcards. Also looking for the mustang boss 429, mustang boss 302, 68 mustang fastback wildcard, and 63 corvette stingray.

    Autozone has some limited M2 58 chevy pickups that are labelled autozone and come with the diecast autolift. Those are pretty cool too. I may have to get a set of these. The autolift series they need to make tall clear cubes instead of the blister pack. Nicer to display in the cubes.

    When almost every room and closet in my buddies house was filled to the ceiling with diecast NASCAR models, he called me to build him a new house. The basement is about 66 feet long and 30 feet wide. Row after row of shelves, floor to ceiling are filled with models, all in order by manufacturer, and by number. When I took a break while building we went to the race in Michigan. He spent 700 dollars and borrowed another 400 from me when he ran out of cash and wanted more. He's a Chevy freak, Kayne won. Haha. When you turn on the lights in the basememt it is like an explosion of color. Approximate value...$1.25 mil.
