Yeah there are a few that were only available to the UK and Europe market in 1982. By this time America had started using the generic yellow box with the pictures of a jeep, corvette and a peterbilt.

The rarest of these later boxes is the picture box for the orange Dodge Revin Rebel. It costs more than the model ha.

I think I have the Revin Rebel. The one I really want is the Audi. Number 24 or 25 I think.

Then the rest from 1982 apart from the No 8 Rover, that's from 1981 but the US didn't get that one either.
