I have collected them for a long time and have about 325 of them in my collection.  Still I do not know that much about them other than I really like them.  From what I have read Aurora tried to compete with Hot Wheels with these models but discontinued them in about 18 months.  They are very fragile compared to any other brand.  There are a lot of broken and damaged ones and very few mint ones.
 
They come in 3 basic styles:
Cigar Box - colored plastic with either rubber or plastic tires, these came in minature "Cigar Boxes"
Speedline - metalized plastic with either rubber or plastic tires, these came on blister cars
"Cheapie" - the final style which is very cheaply made and do not have windows or metal bases, these came on blister cards
Some of the plastic tires have silver paint spokes

I found these advertisements recently:

   

There are track sets and accessories too plus carry cases and display boxes

There is also a gift pack which included 12 cars which I have had a few of but there is also a giant gift pack that had I think 24 cars.  I saw that style only once and would really like to get one someday.
