Please welcome Andy Goodman to the M2 family!

Hey Gang,

As the M2 business grows so have my responsibilities. I no longer have the time to post images and answer questions as much as I would like too. I really do enjoy the interaction with all our collectors. It's one of the things I look forward to at conventions. Just hanging out and talking about cars. Lately our communication with our collectors hasn't been the quickest. It was something that didn't sit well with me. Our priority since day one was to always bring you the M2 Collector, the newest information and answer questions to the best of our abilities.

Fortunately for us a solution presented itself. Our good friend Andy Goodman is stepping in and taking over the social media part of M2 Machines. A lot of you probably already know Andy. In case you don't here's a little background on him.

Andy Goodman has been a car guy since his early teens. From managing a performance center on Long Island, NY to being a partner of the world's largest traveling global car show series; his career path has taken him on an exciting journey. He has consulted for MTV, McDonalds, Turtle Wax, Dodge and other high profile companies and has been published in multiple automotive journals. Alpha Penguin Publishing recruited him to co-author "The Complete Idiots Guide to Customizing Your Ride".  Andy currently spends much of his time in the automotive event production industry and consulting for such brands as Passion or Obsession and Yota.

Andy is also an internationally recognized model car collector. He is fascinated with scaled automobiles from all segments of the industry and is considered to be by many, and has been recognized by the Diecast Hall of Fame, as a 1:64th scale expert and historian.  Andy's personal collection is document to consist of over 25,000 unique pieces and is displayed proudly throughout his home.

Having Andy on board will free up some time for me working on the M2 lines. I can now tackle some projects that have been on hold. I'll still be around and will continue posting photos and answering questions when I can. So please use Andy as a resource and also remember you can contact us directly at support@m2machines.com. Thank you for your passion and support of our M2 products.

I had to post this photo I took of Andy at a convention a few years ago. He was stealing, I mean "borrowing" my box of M2 prototypes and pre-produciton samples!!!

NEW M2 Fun Lines Promo for SEMA 2014!!!



Hey Gang,

With the 2014 SEMA show only a few weeks away, we would like to show you the new M2 promos for the Show! These promos have been produced for Fun Lines. Please note that these promos cannot be picked up at the SEMA show. You can place your order with Steve or Dana at the show. The product will be shipped to you after the show. SEMA is a trade show, so there's no selling of any products on the show floor. It's always been this way. You can contact Fun Lines at 1-800-925-2883 or www.funlines.net for pricing and availability. The Fun Lines/M2 Machines booth is located at 12984 in the North Hall this year. So stop by and say hi!

First up are the VW Beetles. The regular car is the 1/64 1953 VW Beetle Deluxe USA model. This Beetle is painted Lime Green with "Crazy Painter" graphics from Tom Kelly. The bug also features USA bumpers, open pull back sun roof, new low profile tires, new E-T Wheels 5-spoke chrome wheels for Volkswagens, and lowered chassis. This version is limited to 492 pieces worldwide. Now the chase car is black with gold graphics. All the trim, bumpers, and rims are now gold. This little gem is limited to only 108 pieces worldwide. Good luck!

Now for the M2 Mustang 50th Anniversary Auto-Lift for SEMA 2014! This set has two 1/64 1968 1/2 Ford Mustang Cobra-Jet cars. Both cars are Black with a semi-gloss black hood stripe and blue interior. One is beautifully restored as it rolled off the assembly line in 1968. The second one is missing the hood and has a layer of dirt and surface rust. It's a perfect candidate for a full rotisserie restoration.  Good luck!

Thanks, Sean
