    My vote would be Tony Raines' 2005 Yard-Man Chevy... I can barely find a picture of one these days.

    I had no idea these would wind up being so hard to find. Based on their ARC equivalents they seemed like no-brainers. Was I ever wrong. I have a few other Dodge Elites from this general time frame that fit this bill as well.

    2006 Casey Mears #42 Havoline Elite.

    Good question.

    I have a couple of them, if I like the livery I just get it/one, no real rhyme or reason.

    I would post pics but with no bulk uploader, it would take too much time. ( AdminVSAdminVS something that needs to be addressed with the death of flash )

    One that really comes to mind is/are the Todd Kluever #06 3M pieces that I have. Not sure why, but I just like the liveries.

    Did you ever get that Finishmaster? Because there's been one on eBay for a while.

    Several. Off the top of my head (1/64 scales):
    39 Ryan Newman Army 2009
    42 Juan Montoya Target 2009
    84 AJ Allmendinger Red Bull 2008
    4 Kasey Kahne Red Bull 2011
    (basically all of the Red Bull cars)
    32 Ricky Craven Tide 2004 (Hot Wheels). If I didn't have this car, I would not think it existed.
    70 Johnny Sauter Yellow Freight 2007 (Promo)
    07 Clint Bowyer DirecTV COT 2007
    31 Jeff Burton AT&T COT 2007

    I'm sure I have more that I'm not aware of.

    One showed up on eBay recently and I was outbid at the last minute. Went a little high but I would have gone for it.

    The one I will never be able to afford is the 2007 Kevin Harvick Elvis Peanut Butter Cup/Banana Cream 1/24. I knew the car would be expensive at 1st but hoped it would have come down in price by now. :(

    Great list, especially mentioning the Red Bull cars and that Johnny Sauter 70 diecast.

    That reminds me that so many of those #66 (Jeff Green, Scott Riggs) and #70 (Johnny Sauter, Jeremy Mayfield) pieces are rare. These are cars from toward the end of the run of Gene Haas Racing, before it became Stewart-Haas Racing. It doesn't matter if they are CFS pieces or RC2 or Motorsports Authentics...it's a little strange that so many of these are hard to find.

    That Mayfield #70 (1:24) only comes up on eBay maybe twice a year. (At least I never see it come up.) Does anybody know if they even did a 1:64 of the Mayfield #70?

    Some of the rarer ones I bought I didn't think would be so scarce today were a lot of the CFS Champion Cars. Ones, like mentioned in other posts, the 2008 Champions of the #21 Motorcraft Retro, #66 and #70 HAAS, and the #28 Kvapil Lafayette Ford. There some of the Marcos Ambrose cars, #43 Sorenson McDonalds, and some of the Robby Gordon cars from 2007 and 2008. At the time they came out, they were just another car. Back marker cars at that, or at least not strong up front runners with no huge names minus maybe the Elliott car. I also have some of those Gold series promos. Like I have the #25 FreeCreditReport.com from Rensi/Gilliland. Things like that don't just pop up every day.

    I don’t have either of them and they are not on my list but it amazes me how hard it is to find the Team Caliber 2000 Chad Little John Deere 1/24 and Team Caliber 2005 Jeff Green Cheerios 1/24.
