12 die-cast car models for grown-ups

Photo credit: Maisto

Many auto lovers grew up playing with die-cast car toys from brands like Hot Wheels or Matchbox. That doesn't mean, however, that they're banished to childhood memories; you can still buy and admire plenty of awesome toy cars in an array of sizes. While you might be past the drive-them-on-a-rug stage (or maybe not; no judgment here), die-cast cars still look great on a shelf, on your desk, or on the dashboard of your matching show car.

We combed through Amazon to find our favorite die-cast car models for fans of many automotive niches. The cars also make great stocking stuffers, or you can even make somebody's day by leaving one on the windshield of an identical real-life car. Good luck choosing just one!
