The name "Streakers" was used by the Lesney company to denote a certain subset of Matchbox Miniatures diecast models from 1975 to 1980.
These models were part of the basic range and were actually Superfast models, retaining the Superfast name cast on their bases. They are distinguished from other Superfast models by the tampo print decoration which was applied to them. In fact they were the very first Matchbox Miniatures models which featured tampo print decoration.
The Streakers name was retired together with the Superfast name in 1980.
In 2005 Mattel issued some models as part of its Superfast range (which had been introduced in 2004) featuring the Streakers name on their packaging. Like their predecessors, these models have colorful tampo decoration.Less
