What is Colorchrome?

Colorchrome is a special paint finish with an iridescent glow. You know the way Christmas ornaments gleam and reflect light? Colorchrome reflects light in the same manner so they look great on display as part of your collection. As you know, the first issue of any collectible is always the time to start your collection. Some more details of how the colorchrome process actually works:

  • Labor-intensive process of hand-polishing every inch of the die-cast body
  • Chrome-plated with electro-plating process
  • Painted with clear lacquer and finished with a color tint of the original body color
  • Original sponsor decal package is applied over colorchrome finish

Only a few select drivers will be chosen for the colorchrome finish in the Elite models in any given year.

What is Elite Metal?

  • Handcrafted metal in it's natural state for only a select group of accomplished NASCAR Drivers.
What is Elite Platinum?
  • Platinum is a precious, silver-white color metal.
  • Platinum is the rarest,strongest and noblest of the precious metals.
  • This precious metal creates an attractive high polish finish.
  • Cars still feature tampo-printed graphics with high quality paint.
  • Approximately 8 tons of raw ore must be mined to produce just one pure once of platinum.
