I picked up both paint varies of the Sweet Pea. They are sweet! One is primer brown like and the other is bare metal like a Hot Wheels Zamac. No official announcement that the bare metal one is a chase car but MANY people seem to think so and they are flying off the pegs. The real Sweet Pea car is unpainted/bare metal so that's why there is a bare metal version in diecast.

Here's a pix of the bare metal Sweet Pea still in it's plastic prision....



Here is the other Sweet Pea on the back of a Jada For Sale COE...

The real Sweet Pea isn't exactly bare metal. It's the original 70 year old paint, which in rat rod terms is called "patina".
No official word yet on whether or not the zamac version is a chase car? People on e*ay seeling it, and the zamac bike, as chase pieces.

Thanks for the info. ECchopper. My Sweet Pea has the holes also.

No problem. And in case you didn't see this because I posted it in another forum, I wrote an email to the MGA Entertainment website asking if the bare metal vehicles are chase cars. This was their response.

""Our plan is to roll out new "waves" of chopper and car styles
approximately every 90 days. Generally, each wave will have one
chopper
or car that also comes in a bare metal version. These bare metal
versions are made in a limited quantity and will be more difficult to
find than the painted versions."
