Back To The 50's, M2's New Release

Finally they came! I thought these second batch of new casting by M2 Autothentics by Castline would take forever. And they were not a disappointment. This is already 'release 3', the 4th release is the Holiday ornament type diecast. They used these new casting and anodized the car and added pinstriping. I would stick to this release 3 because the cars were made to be more realistic than the 'holiday ornaments version'.

here they are, free already from their packaging!

1957 Chevy Bel Air



1953 Ford Crestline Victoria



1954 Dodge Coronet


1955 Desoto Fireflight



1957 Desoto Adventurer



1955 Dodge Royal Lancer

These are the most awesome little cars.... The holiday assortment is even more impressive because of the artwork! Have you seen the Auto-Stretch rods? They're not everyone's cup o' tea, but I like them. Release 2 is coming soon.

Hi maleia!

M2 autothentics are the best when it comes to small scale classic cars.
The auto strecth limos are great also, but I'm just sticking with the originals. :) I hope to see more of new castings by M2, specially the ones that are not produced by Johnny Lightning.

thanks for droppin' by Maleia, and visit the site for updates. :)

Great M2 classic collection with your nice back ground make it looks more real. I wish M2 die-cast come to Malaysia. I only have one M2 car, transparent Classic 1957 Chevy. I fall in love with this M2 classic car the moment I saw them.

thanks Melvin!! :)

you're right, these M2s are really awesome! its at par with kyosho and greenlight models.

don't worry, maybe M2s are just a few months delayed in Malaysia.
