Die-cast cars

Is there anyone out there interested in 1:18 scale die cast cars? These are great collectible items. I am collecting them and currently I have around 30 of them. The detail on them are amazing. Recently I found the die cast replica of Mazda 3, but unfortunately only in sedan. Can't wait for the hatchback one.
The link is for that car:

Allan has the most incredible collection. If anyone knows where I can find "Checkmate" cars please let me know.

more on mazda die-casts

There is another manufacturer called Kyosho which is more accessible than CheckMate. They made the Mazda 6 and can be purchased at e-bay for about 70 dollars. I wonder how do they decide which models to build?

Allan's collection is the only place i saw this model and he doesn't sell his models.
Asheville diecast only carries one Checkmate model. If anybody can locate a retailer that has them, the demand is ready.

My guess about the price is in the $50-$70 range.
