In 2003, Trend Syndicate LLC was based in Irvine, California. They provided castings for the "Motorworks" line at Walmart. It is not clear, if they produced them - or only distributed them. The 1:64 scale castings were highly detailed Japanese car castings called "Tunerseries". The interiors and wheel sets used also reflected the real life tuner modifications being made at the time. They also had highly detailed base pieces. One known example is a Lexus IS300.
