M2Machines has announced their first and second release in the 1st Shot Replicas line. These are like the Auto-thentics that we already love, but with a raw unpainted finish. Each one is signed by a factory worker, adding a unique quality that collectors will love! These are extremely limited, with just over 900 produced for each release. We will have the first release in a matter of days, a 1957 Chevy Bel Air. The second will arrive next month and features a 1969 Dodge Charger. You can look for each release about every two months. These will not be found in stores and will be gone fast, so get your pre-order in soon!
***Update*** I was just handed the very first of these that we received, and was so excited that I whipped out my camera phone and snapped a photo. This is an example of the signature on the top of the car:

We always have high expectations for each year's Texaco release, and wait in hopeful anticipation for their announcement. It's fun to see what they've decided to do next. We've just received information about the 2009 release, and it's attractive as ever! It's a Lockheed 12a Electra Jr. It was used as an eight-seat, six passenger all-metal transport designed for use by smaller airlines and private owners. At the time of the Pearl Harbor attack, this plane outsold the competing plane 2-1, although only 130 were ever built. This was also the plane in the movie Casablanca. (Information is from Wikipedia. Read more here.)
These always come in a regular edition as well as a special brushed metal edition. You may purchase them individually, or preorder the set for free shipping. They feature a die-cast, locking coin bank with a key. Due to be released in November, they are available for preorder now on our website!
