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.

New Bright's been around for so long? I thought they're a recent Chinese company making toys.
I bought my son a New Bright Dodge Ram remote control truck,. quite huge actually. I enjoy playing with it too as it goes over anything!

Yep, they go back at least that long.
Here's the toy I had I think it was a cheapie thing - maybe $20 or so new, but the detail was pretty fantastic to me, and it's pretty big, too.
