Yes, Autoart. I am organizing the collection in the basement as we speak. Final count of Autoarts in the box is 144 lol.

There are still about 10-15 of them you can snag for under $30, but older models. Great way to get into the hobby.

The company UT pre-dates Autoart, but it's the same company. UT did a lot of early BMW's, I have lots of Z3 cars and E36 M3's.

I also like Hotwheels Elite, they can be snagged for $45 on Amazon and are 90% Ferrari.

Ertl Authentics/Precision 100 are very nice and detailed and feature American cars. Same for Highway 61. I have snagged quite a few for under $30.

Kyosho is a great brand for japanese sports cars, plenty of BMW's too.
