Just curious. We have not seen anything new in the Autothentics line for some time. And mostly repaints in the Muscle cars. I would be happy if they at least made convertibles out of the hardtops. :confused:

I sure hope they will release a 1959 Ford Galaxie soon. Plus a 1956 Packard Caribbean and a 1957 Cadillac Coupe DeVille. I've been hoping for many years to buy detailed versions of these three cars in the 1/64 range.

Don't get me wrong. I like the repaints very much. But I do not like them calling it "Autothentics" and then they paint the cars purple, neon green, etc... I want originals. If Castline likes the customs that is okay. But please start a new series. Call it '50's customs? I would have been much happier if release 8 and 10 were original repaints. And while I'm thinking about it, what happened to release 9? Milezone's said they would have it in two weeks and it is well beyond that. Also will release 9 be originals or new castings? Is that why it was delayed? Sean, can you shed some light on this?

Let me try. Is there anything NEW at M2? Please don't pee on my leg and tell me it's raining. Pinstripes and lakes pipes on last years peg warmers don't equal new.

We had some small issues with Auto-thentics release 09. The next new castings are for the Auto-Thentics line. So don't worry guys, we are going to be making more cars of the 1950's.

A side note, Auto-Thentics release 09 and Detroit-Muscle 10 actually go together. Both releases are factory cars.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving,
Sean
