    I really like the Sam Ard and Kulwicki cars. Is that Venturini at the top right?

    This was a way too underrated throwback from last year.....boo hoo itís an Indycar Scheme, thatís no reason to hate on it, the paint scheme is simple, clean and still colorful; this car could work perfectly fine as a Primary today, I knew I had to get a custom of it when it dnpd

    2017 Joey Logano #22 Shell Pennzoil Darlington Throwback Ford Fusion 1/24 Custom ARC












    This is just a beautiful throwback that worked perfectly, a Scheme thatís better then the current Skittles Primary......glad to see mars finally run a throwback, now please run the old 36 M&Ms scheme already














    It was really awesome to see a brand new M&Ms vote scheme and it came out great; was cool that he was able to win in the scheme it made a nice dirty Raced win, since M&Ms is doing another flavor vote in 2019, hopefully we see another vote car

    2018 Kyle Busch #18 M&Ms Flavor Vote Richmond Win Toyota Camry 1/24 ARC












    Since I already had the other 2 Mtn Dew Schemes this year might as well complete the trio, and who doesnít love little Caesars, itís cool to see them back,

    2018 Chase Elliott #9 Little Caesarís/Mtn Dew Chevy Camaro 1/24 ARC












    After getting that chase Elliott I just felt nostalgic for this classic scheme and I knew I had to get one, such a bright and memorable car

    1996 Jeremy Mayfield #37 Little Caesarís/Kmart Ford Thunderbird 1/24 Revell












    Definitely a huge shame lionel botched the red on this car in the same manner that they did the STP, how no one noticed this for 2 separate cars is quite concerning, but itís still a sweet throwback scheme and at least itís still STPs own logo red so itís not a terrible looking color

    2018 Bubba Wallace #43 Pettys Garage Chevy Camaro 1/24 ARC












    Not the best scheme, kind of an ugly mess all things considered, but it was very unique and easy to spot; and technically was his primary rookie scheme, so I had to get one, kinda similar to how people look at Kyleís Interstate Zebra Scheme....

    2018 Bubba Wallace #43 World Wide Technology Chevy Camaro 1/24 ARC












    Iím always a sucker for interesting promo pieces, and the fact that this was a 1/24 In store promo in this day and age really elevated it, we just donít get that any more; Iíve wanted a federated Auto Parts Diecast for a while, they have always had such nice schemes, itís a shame lionel put it on the wrong body with the wrong spoiler though......

    2017 Austin Theriault #52 Federated Auto Parts ARCA Championship Ford Fusion 1/24 Promo ARC












    This is one of those random cars thatís been on my list for a while, it such a satisfyingly simple car, just bright orange with a roller coaster, since my sort of local theme park that used to be a six flags years ago is going back to being a six flags Iím feeling that hype from my childhood

    2006 Tony Stewart #20 Six Flags 45th Anniversary Chevy Monte Carlo 1/24 ARC












    Another great M&Ms set, and a lot of people seem to forget that dale Jarrett even ever raced an M&Ms car,

    2005 Elliott Sadler #38 & Dale Jarrett #88 M&Ms Star Wars Episode 3 Ford Taurus 1/24 ARCs








    Iíve wanted a Raceway Replicas release for years, and finally found one for a great price, these Diecast are just incredible ; from the detail, especially for the times these were released in, to the awesome car cover they come with, the only downside of these cars is the window net

    1996 Sterling Marlin #4 Kodak Film Chevy Monte Carlo 1/24 Raceway Replicas

    Liquid color is technically the most accurate, the color chrome isnít more accurate by any means because thereís nothing chrome about the real car, also the standard version really isnít that bad at all like some of you are making it out to be, itís a perfectly fine metallic thatís not far off

    I don't have any pics, but I picked up a couple of Truex raced wins from his Chance 2/DEI days; '04 Wrangler Darlington & '05 BPS Mexico City. Only have 2 more cars to track down for my MTJ collection.

    The Liquid Color WG win looks really nice, and the hue of blue looks to be really close to the actual car. It's kind of amazing how Lionel can get that close when they charge more for a specialty finish instead of just making the raced win match like it should. Oh well; those wheels are still an eyesore though.

    Holiday rush; Lionel wanted as much done as possible due to the factory closing down for Chinese New Year, basically they lose a month of work due to down time. So they put a big rush on getting things out the door. Which inevitably means mistakes and QC issues.

    The Liquid Color version of this car is very very nice.

    This is the reason why I bought the CC version. I knew the standard wouldn't be even close to the actual car.

    The blue is improved over the prototype, and it looks like the bottom main grill decal is substantially better. The one on the proto was too cloudy.



    IDK about those rims; would need to see better angles on the diecast. The windshield wiper decal is just awful though; I really wish they would've just left it off.
