Attending Industry Guests

Sean Taylor

 Vice President of Product Development, Sean Taylor, is the man behind the scenes at M2 Machines.  He researches, designs and develops every casting and every vehicle variation offered from Castline.  A Southern California native with an auto mechanic for a dad, Sean grew up around the automotive industry, from building model kits as a kid to spending his weekends at car shows. Today, Sean is the definition of a true gear head.  Sean's wealth of existing automotive knowledge and his pure interest to study and learn about the automotive culture coupled with his outstanding artistic abilities, enables him to deliver diecast models replicating exact option packages as they were delivered decades ago. He has been in the diecast field for almost fifteen years and makes a point of immersing himself in the hobby, befriending and listening to collectors. He could talk about cars all day long.

Brian Nazario

 Brian Nazario is an automotive restoration technician by day and a diecast hobbyist by night. He has been a diecast collector for over twenty years. Five years ago, Brian took collecting to the next level by creating custom diecast vehicles, mainly M2 Machines and Hot Wheels. His natural talent for painting has made him one of the best diecast artists outside of the manufactures themselves. All of the hand crafted low production M2 Machines event vehicles for Central Pennsylvania Collector-Con are his creations. His work can be seen at Super-B Diecast Customs (on Facebook and Instagram).
