    This is my current NASCAR 1/24th Scale Diecast collection as of December 28th, 2015. Features both Team Caliber and Action models ranging from 2001 all the way up to 2009 (although a good chunk of the collection is from 2001). This thread will be updated whenever I make future additions to my collection (most likely in late March next year when I head down to Fontana to watch the Xfinity and Sprint Cup race at Auto Club Speedway)!

    Not the greatest images, but I just wanted to gather my collection together from two different rooms in order to showcase it. This opening post features two photos of the entire collection along with the first group of three on the back row, with the following post showcasing the remaining groups of three.

    Here is the rest of the "pairs of three" images that would not all fit into the original post (image upload limit):

    The newest addition to my 2001-2009 diecast collection arrived last night. The 2009 Dale Earnhardt Jr. #88 AMP Energy/Mountain Dew Chevy Impala SS is only the 2nd diecast I own from the 2009 NASCAR Sprint Cup Season (the other being a 2009 Casey Mears #07 Jack Daniels Chevy Impala SS) and looks pretty damn sharp.

    Fun Fact: The Mountain Dew logo on the 2009 diecast ended up being different from what actually was on the real-life car that season. Starting with Speedweeks at Daytona, along with the 2009 Daytona 500, the MTN DEW logo was used instead.

    After several months of waiting, my Jeff Gordon 2000 Diehard 500 Talladega-winning 1/24 #24 DuPont Chevy Monte Carlo finally arrived in the mail. This car is absolutely beautiful and makes a fantastic addition to my collection. The only weird thing about this car is that the "NASCAR Winston Cup Series" logo has been changed to only say "NASCAR".

    It took longer than I thought it would take to arrive, but my latest addition to my expanding diecast collection finally arrived this morning. The 1/24th Scale Liquid Color #24 NAPA Auto Parts Chevy SS - Daytona 500 Pole Sitting Car Elite diecast looks absolutely stunning when the light hits it just right and the blue paint shines (the photos don't do it justice). This marks the third race car in my collection that is features the Liquid Color option and I look forward to getting my next diecast with the awesome Liquid Color!

    After several months of waiting, my final diecast order of the year arrived earlier today. Below is the special #20 Tide Toyota Camry that Matt Kenseth drove in the 2016 Bojangles' Southern 500 at Darlington this past summer, in the fantastic Color Chrome finish. According to the documentation that came with it, it is one of the 26 ever produced (making it the rarest diecast in my collection)!

    These photos don't do the fantastic chrome orange color justice. This thing absolutely shines vividly when it is anywhere light is, and the chrome orange is a true sight to behold. My only issue with the car is the rear decklid (especially in the 1st and 3rd photos) does not close all the way. Minor defect (which is a shame), but this is hands-down the most beautiful car I have ever laid my eyes on.
