Plsu most of the ones you have on that list I remember seeing them being made by Hot Wheels or Matchbox at one time or another.
Type in "your year make model" and "1:64 scale" on ebay and I bet you can find most of them like that.

I might even do a broader search, just to be safe - people list things on ebay strangely sometimes. Bad listings can also get you a better deal on sought after items. I'd just go to the diecast page and search by make and model, weeding out the junk from there.
I know Matchbox made a 1:64 MGA, introduced around 1958. One would be lucky to find a mint boxed example for under $100 though.

I am certain there has been a model of the Audi made either recently or when the car was new...probably the Subaru too. There are diecast makers who don't concentrate on NA sales who make models of odd cars to sell in Asia or Europe.

This is the top of my TV cabinet where the 1:43 and smaller cars live - there has to be at least 200 individual cars here, but most live in their boxes stacked sideways to optimize room and prevent box faces from fading. I mostly collect Matchbox made through around 1964 - which is not the cheapest thing to like - but they are not losing value either.

I like the Matchbox display stand you have. Pretty neat.

Those are cute items I ordered from England - the mint loose cars live there until I can find empty boxes for them. Empty boxes are an entire branch of Matchbox collecting - many bring $100++ even without a car.

The Chinese are getting quick
I remember I had a New Bright remote control Fiero when I was a kid, it was pretty cool - working lights and I think horn too.
