Hot Sixty 4th: Wonderful World of Wreckers Day 1

Need to get your VW towed? (hotsixty4th M2 VW)

Welcome to Hot Sixty 4th where I showcase DLM 1/64 and smaller and sometimes slightly larger. First of all Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. Now who doesn't love playing with a wrecker as a kid? I certainly enjoyed the play value of being able to pull a car with the attached hook and so for my 85th post in Drivetribe and 331st total post I bring you the 1960 VW double Cab truck from M2 under their R52 Auto Trucks series.

I acquire this last year and it was only this year that I decided to open this beauty. And what a beauty this is. It does not deserved to just remain in their package. This thing needs to be taken out, admired, displayed and .... even played with.

I love the 2 tone paint job and the classic art work definitely gave me nostalgia. M2 did a good job with the quality as well. The packaging indicated opening doors but there are none. It does come with inserted headlights.

One thing that I am not happy is that M2 decided to use one mold to make multiple varieties of their pickup casting by having prepunched holes on the bed that may or may not be needed.

  • I did a double take as I took a very similar picture nearly two years ago.

    • Oh wow, that means this was released 2 years ago and must had bought it that long ago too. Time sure flies quickly.
