The Schuco 1/64 MiJo Exclusives are now out, and available at SURPLUSgoodies.

The second MiJo Exclusives Auto-Japan set from M2 Machines is now out.
I am still all in on M2's Auto-Japan series. Sure, they have done the same three castings - but all with M2-esque mods - but they have done them all right. The decos follow interesting themes, stay connected, and most importantly, look really good. I just found the next set of Auto-Japan at Walmart, and …

Extreme DLM (Part 2): Ben Kiehn opens an Auto World Ultra Raw Ford GT40…Again!
Ben Kiehn caused a little buzz here a couple of years ago when he wrote a guest post for Lamley documenting his liberation of a super rare Auto World Ford GT40 Ultra Raw. This is a big deal, mainly because there are only 10 Ultra Raws produced of each AW release, when they even do …

Not to be outdone, Auto World x MiJo Exclusives unveil their Gulf Ford GT40
There are a few no-brainers in the car world. One of them is "everyone loves a Gulf Racing Ford GT40". It applies to diecast too. If a Ford GT40 replica is made, it will eventually go Gulf. And if a Ford GT40 replica goes Gulf, collectors will buy it. With that in mind, check this …

An Instant Classic: The Auto World x MiJo Exclusive “For Sale” Plymouth Fury from Christine
I have never seen Christine. I probably should. I like cars, but have never thought too much about haunted cars. So I don't know the story, but I do know the movie bred an automotive icon, along the lines of KITT and Eleanor. The Plymouth Fury is a character. And it has generated some stellar …

The M2 Machines VW Double Cab Camper is insanely cool. Here is how M2 Designer Sean Taylor made it happen.
A few months ago M2 caused quite the stir with their VW Double Cabs. 6 models, all different, all based on the '59/'60 Double Cab Pickup. In typical M2 fashion, the models were highly detailed, but the styles and looks of each represented a different element of the car world, from stock to aftermarket. https://youtu.be/m0zpDYzXs4M …
