About the author

I have been a car guy since my 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; my career path has taken me on an exciting journey. I have consulted for MTV, McDonalds, Turtle Wax, Dodge and other high profile companies and have been published in multiple automotive journals. Alpha Penguin Publishing recruited me to co-author “The Complete Idiots Guide to Customizing Your Ride” for which one of my cars graces the cover. My diecast addiction began about 12 years back. My girlfriend at the time knew I was saving for a Mustang Cobra. She thought it would be humorous and purchased a diecast version to hold me over for a while. What was an initial joke struck a chord because I was fascinated with how Hot Wheels could make such a cool replica for a buck. The next time we went shopping I stopped in the toy aisle and ended up purchasing additional Hot Wheels and a few Jada vehicles. Well you all know the story from here; one shelf led to a book case. The book case quickly became an apartment filled with hundreds of HotWheels, Jada and other 1:64th scale replicas. Next came my introduction to 1:24th and 1:18th scale die cast and twelve years later I am the proud owner of a collection that is displayed in a 2000sq foot facility with a current count of over 12 thousand unique pieces. My then girlfriend, now wife, has a lot of patience for my hobby and my two little girls enjoy it with us too. Today I find myself fascinated with all scales and all models of customized vehicles. From tuners to rat rods, lead sleds to pro street drag. I do have an appreciation for the well delivered OEM vehicles as well. Most of all I enjoy the hunt to complete a set or series of vehicles. I look forward to being a part of DieCast X Magazine and helping to strengthen, grow and deliver our hobby to people who do not know how rewarding it is to an individual and a family.

    My wife recently purchased the M2 machines 1970 Buick GSX die cast and in the frenzy of going thru the mass amounts of boxes they had at Wal-Mart, she took this one home. She presented it to me as the car “she always wanted” and I noticed they forgot to include the MOTOR! The box was never opened (still isn’t) and I’m curious if you or anyone would know if this was an error by the manufacture and if there are anymore like this out there? It still has the rubber-band wrapped around the nose to keep the hood closed in the package. I’m wondering if this was pot luck and if there’s any value? Please advise if you can help out :)

      This would be considered an error car and there are many collectors who seek these types of oddities. Yes it does happen every now and then – but your in luck becyase M2 Machines is one of the best customer service oriented companies out there- just touch base with them via their website m2machines.com and let them know – I have seen this mentioned once or twice before on oher websites and I know they replaced the vehicles in both instances.
