The Busch Wacker
I just found those two Harvick and those two Stewarts... In my display case! :wink:The rarest would be prototypes of cars that were not produced. In addition, rare does not equal most valuable. There are lots of cars that are hard to find, especially since production numbers in the last few years are way down, but there are also a lot of cars from the late 90's with high production numbers that are extremely hard to find.
In addition, there are special releases, promo's, exclusives, etc. that are extremely hard to find. Ask some of the guys trying to find a Jimmie Johnson 250th start car how rare that one is (only 100 produced I believe) or a 2006 Daytona win elite. They'll tell you those cars likely don't exist for sale any more because they NEVER come up for sale.
Try getting your hands on a Harvick Tide Gold truck. Over half of those (36 made) have found permanent homes, but they're relatively new so you might get lucky. Another car thats nearly impossible to find is the Kevin Harvick Coke Zero raced win elite (made in elite only).
Try to find a Tony Stewart Subway Talladega Raced Elite or Homestead Tribute car (also elite only). Those also never come up for sale. Travis Kvapil CHP car is another. I am sure there are many more I could list, and I am only speaking about 1/24 scale cars.
There is no way to say which car is the rarest though.
That is a little high for that car (like Beckett is for ALL cars), usually sells around the $450 range now2000 RCCA Elite Dale Earnhardt Under The Lights 1:24
Beckett lists it at $600.
Sometimes I think Bekett does more harm than good for this hobby. Bekett value is always way to high and a lot of people actually think they are gong to get that price for their diecast.
