Trailer Thursday and BONUS Project Sneak Peek

The M2 Auto-Haulers are in a class of their own. The detail, spectacular branding themes, and scaled oh-so-right, make them stand out from the cartoonish haulers that Hot Wheels and Matchbox have come out with. Now don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the Hot Wheels and Matchbox haulers, but for dioramas and display purposes, the M2 haulers are some of the coolest truck and trailer combos made. (New diorama project sneak peek at the end of this feature too)

When I saw this one at a local Wal-Mart, I knew it would be coming home with me. The hauler itself is awesome, but the fact that it came with not one, but TWO matching 1970 Super Bees made me feel like I won some sort of Mopar lottery.

The truck cab is a 1969 Dodge L-600 COE. It comes in a great shade of bronze/brown and looks like it came straight off of a 1969 Dodge dealer’s parking lot after delivering a truck load of those sweet, sweet Hemis.

The cab itself is full of great little details. That’s one thing you have to give M2 credit for — they sure know how to pack all those extra details into their 1/64 scale rides!

For example, the roof horns, external mounted cab lights, the NO RIDERS text, and those perfect bumper hooks.

Once you get done ogling the cab, you notice there’s so much more....and there better be for a shelf price of $17.99 hahaha! (Worth every penny though!)

All that and we’re not even to the cargo yet! The two cars included are a white “stripper” model 383 Super Bee and a upscale Hemi Super Bee. They both show-off the coolest versions of the car that are unique in both motor choice and atheistics.

The details on both cars are fantastic. The clean, simple look with white walls on the white car make it feel a little bit like a sleeper...as much as a Super bee can be a sleeper.

The white walls look a little drunk on this model.....but most everything else came out clean.

The blue car’s simulated vinyl top, trunk spoiler, and redline tires make you think this car was ordered to race in comfort.

I’m not sure which one I like best — so it’s side by side comparison time!

Unfortunately I just could not get the hoods open! I tried and tried but I didn’t want to damage the grill or hood so I gave up for now.

And the winner is?! Whoever buys this set for their collection - that’s who the real winner is! Both cars look great and the trailer is very cool, so I walk away from this smiling and add another hauler to my diorama line-up.

And speaking of dioramas, I am very, VERY excited to give LaLD members this sneak peek of something I will be posting this Fall....this one is a long time in the making too. Yee Haa!!!!!!!
