M2 Machines “Moon Pie” Haulers

M2 Machines “Moon Pie” Haulers

Southern folks love moon pies. Mobile, AL, is so enamored of the chocolate-covered graham cracker and marshmallow confection that they hoist a 12-foot-wide replica of one to celebrate the new year. You’d understand if you tasted one. We were laughing out loud over this trio of classic trucks — a ’56 Ford COE, a ’58 Dodge COE, and a ‘58 Chevy LCF — all hauling “Moon-Pie Brand” trailers. The tractors are typical M2 — outrageously well-detailed in this scale, with great chrome, delicate grilles, and sharp, tamped-on decorations. All three have great wheels and tires — another M2 trademark — but it’s the black and chrome Chevrolet that gets the nod as the snappiest looking, thanks to the bright truck rims and redline rubber. Mopar fans will love the retro-feel  Dodge the most, thanks to the Moon Pie Race Team Charger Daytona parked out back; the other two trailers — one distinctly vintage, suggesting Moon Pies as the best lunch in town for 5 cents, and the other more current, right down to the symbolic “I Love Moon Pie” slogan, spelled out with an eye, a heart, a crescent moon, and the symbol for “pi.” It doesn’t matter what part of the country you’re from, these little haulers are sweet.
