am looking to pick up the following cars -
1. mitsubishi evo (7 or 8 or 9)
2. impreza
3. skyline GTR

I looked around on the internet and the only manufacturer I could find for the Evo was Auto Art. Could anyone please guide me towards any other manufacturer and the respective website.
thanks a lot, in advance.

You can get Nissan Skyline GTR from Maisto at budget.
You can get it from a Ebay shop which is maintained by modelart India guy.

If you are im India, then AutoART is all you would get. Ask someone to get one for you from the US. there you should get a variety of Models from a huge number of brands. Especially Jada, Motormax, ERTL, etc.

you can do it yourself. a couple of steps-
1. dismantle her carefully and clean her up with soap water.
2. sand her up a bit but be careful with the stickers. (apply cover if you think those will tear up.)
3. by applying a plus and your hand straiten the damaged parts.
4. apply the paint you want.
5. remove the cover and apply the paint you want for the stripes, take the help of the internet for decals.
6. paint the base and wheels black and the driver.
7. add a headlight and with a help of plastic make windows (fit them from inside).
8. TADA!!! you got your own DD bus.

Thanks AmitV8...I will try from tomorrow.But,the problem is,those are not stickers,but painted ones.
I found from wikipedia that, this "Ideal" company was a niche one,like AA today.They introduced teddy bear in the market.
I will go for a shower for her,and atleast sanding of non decaled areas/interiors.

Sorry,it was too late to edit my last post.
Here is the reference Ideal Toy Company encyclopedia topics | Reference.com for the antique bus.
The decals are Lithographed/hand painted.
