Hey Josh, I think those are Chub City Jadas and I believe they are an older series (I have not seen them in quite a while).

if you're talking about the bottom three Chub cars, These are pullbacks that Jada marketed through CVS drug stores. They were put on racks that carry their diecast pullbacks. They're almost identical to the carded cars in the stores like Kragen and Autozone, except for the tampos and paint. I even think the carded ones were pull-backs. Anyway, I just dug the whole cartoony look, so I searched them out and bought a few.

The pullbacks are harder to find. You can find some of the carded cars at auto parts stores and the RC's at some of the larger stores.

Mark, these two are 1:32 Big Time Muscle and Dub City Bugs, respectively. I have three of the 1:24 V-DUB$ Drag Bugs. I still need the silver one and I haven't decided if I'm going to open those.

Sorry, I should have said beetles instead of bugs. It does look like drag bus. Anyway, what I have are the red, blue, and black variations of this beetle. I just need the silver one:
