Are there any Subaru HW or MB cars, any year??? My girlfriend is
really fond of Subaru's and she's starting to get into collecting with
me and she really wants one, if they were to exist... Anyone know of
any years they may have been made -- or does anyone have one?

Thanks in advance for the info...

I thought all subarus were made by matchbox. Just kidding!

Nope, nada. I used to own a Subary Legacy myself and was always looking (still
looking) for a diecast of the same. No Hotwheels or Matchbox castings have
been made ... yet (someone correct me if I'm wrong). The only brand where you
might have some luck is Tomica and they're not available in the US right now.
I know there is a Tomica Subaru Legacy model (motorized) in 1/64th but that's
it. I saw it when I was in Taiwan earlier this summer. I passed on it (too
expensive and doesn't really look that authentic to the real thing).

They may be small, but they sure do last!

I used to have a Subaru Brat, the original model, and have always wished
they'd make a Hot Wheels car out of it.

I had a Lumina van that looks exactly like the Hot Wheels model, and I
currently have a Dodge Caravan (but it doesn't quite look like the Hot
Wheels version - too bad about that!).

Good luck hunting!

Dear Josh

You might find one from european manufacturers like Siku, Majorette or
Solido. I think there must be at least a model of the famous Subaru
Impreza. I will take a closer look at this next time I go shopping
here in europe.
