I have a feeling it will become more common on shelves and in the Maisto assortments. Walmart usually keeps a fair number of them in stock, and prices them under Hot Wheels.
But, if you MUST have one now:

Trust me, for the amount of time you'd spend driving around looking for them, this would be cheaper.

Maisto also makes on in their "Fifty5s" series. I got some on ebay (after being completely unable to find them for sale at ANY store or my usual Maisto/diecast vendors) and they measure out to close to 1/43 scale, which is compatible with O Gauge (Lionel) trains.
Comparing it to a known size accurately scaled 1/43 car, the proportions are off a good bit. The width and height are close, but it is about 1/2 inch too short. Basically, it's an xB2 but in xB1 proportions. The difference is most noticeable in the nose, which is WAY too short:
(All images found through Google)




Edit: It looks like a caricature version of the B . . .


The REASON very few sell this line is that it is an odd collection of car types and most vendors only want one or 2 of the models and have NO use for the rest. As the cases come mixed, they will have ones they can't move, so they don't bother at all.
I was offered several chances to by a case, but declined.

The case would be a completely random mix of:
2009 Nissan 370Z
1972 Datsun 510
1985 Toyota Tacoma
Mistsubishi Lancer Evolution
1975 Datsun Truck 620
Scion xB

Few vendors want more than half of those, and they are in a odd scale/proportion for most collectors.

a site you bought them from might be nice
I did a Google search and it was the first one listed. Same as the site you posted the link to. Is that where you purchased yours?

Thread update:
The Maisto 1/64 ones are now a "standard" Walmart item, as of 2013. They are sold in a 2-pack with a silver xB and a dark green-blue Ford Explorer Sport-Trac. It is in the "store brand" "Adventure"-something line, Walmart's line of Hot-Wheels/Matchbox scaled cars.
