I was looking at my Carl Edwards World Financial cars today, and noticed a difference....

The First Choice production has WorldFinancialGroup.Com on the rear TV valance....





The prototype has WorldFinancialGroup.Com as well........




The color chrome has No Family Left Behind on it.....I found this odd......wish I knew what the actual car had on it......

The colour chrome doesn't have the yellow at the bottom either Ken, is it possible Carl ran 2 different paint schemes or one was a standard scheme and the other was a one race scheme? Also in your pictures one box is a 2004 and the other is a 2005

It doesn't have the yellow because for some odd reason, Team Caliber didn't put any other graphics on their color chrome cars except for the writing. Anything else they always left off for some odd reason, so that explains the lack of any striping etc. As far as the different dates on the boxes, the color chrome was made later, for some reason. Maybe because the original scheme was pretty rare and pretty highly sought after. I have only seen three of the First Choice (which BTW was the only series it was made in) and I have had them all. I never see them on EBay or anywhere else for that matter. I had two proto/samples, but sold one to someone on here, and never saw it again.

He drove a World Financial car in Busch/Xfinity, but it was #60. The Cup version was the first car that was his scheme that he drove. He drove a car that was supposed to be Jeff Burton's, but he ended up driving it. It was a Green Lantern scheme..........

BTW, I have two of the First Choice regular schemes, and two of the Color Chromes which are Preferred and are autographed. If anyone is interested, I'd sell the extras.....

I think there were a few of dark chrome pieces that had livery graphics as well as letter graphics that at this writing, that I can recall seeing with anything other than writing, that I can remember, one was the #16 2003 Grainger, it has the graphics and the rookie stripes. The #97 2004 Rubbermaid 9/11. The #45 2003 Brawney, #6 2003 Viagra.

I can't really recall the colour chrome, maybe the sam bass x-mas pieces? I think those were colour chrome with graphics..?

The 2002 #6, #12 and #48 blue chrome and some 2006 #6 releases of 02-03 Viagra chromes had livery graphics as well, but you are right, for the most part all they did was the lettering.
