    Really loved Denny's "fauxback" from 2020 with the Federal Express color scheme. Looked really sharp!

      First off, if I assume you mean the past few years then I'd cap it off from anything before 2019 (last 5 years) just for how I am looking at it before I make my choices. I'm also going to give my personal favorites from each year from 2019-2023 and will then leave pictures of the throwbacks that are cream of the crop in my opinion (just Cup wise):

      2019-Brad K (Rusty's Miller Lite 1996), Logano (Harvick's 2007 Daytona 500), Willy B (Days of Thunder)
      2020-Harvick (1997 Busch Beer Can/2 Time Busch Series Champ), KFB (Sadler's M&Ms 2004), JJ (7x Champ Tribute), Bowman (JJ's 2006 Champ Scheme)
      2021-Houff (John Andretti's RCA 1990s), LaJoie (Kulwicki's 1990 Zerex), Bilicki (Lennie Pond's Burger King 1980)
      2022-Chastain/Suarez (Dale Sr/Jr's Coke Cars 1998), Lajoie (Marty Robbins 777), Buescher (Matt Kenseth Dewalt 2004)
      2023-Suarez (Rooster's Quaker State 1988), Elliott (Bill's Dodge Dealers 2001-2003), Newman (Rocket Man Mobil1 2002)

      Top 3 would be in no order would be Willy B's from 2019, LaJoie's from 2021, and Houff's from 2021.

        From 2018. This was a few years ago. Close enough

          Being a huge Bill Elliott fan who watched his resurgence in the 2001 Dodge Dealers Dodge, Chase's 2023 throwback brings back some really fond memories for me. I also like the Rudd Quaker State throwback for Suarez.

            Still the best in my opinion. So good that if they ever get a deal with Coke for diecast they should go back and release it in the historic series
