Where is a good place to get Tamiya cars?

Speedtech RC is a great place to get Tamiya stuff and usually have the majority of stuff in stock ready to rock.

Think the F1 might be calling my name, love the scale look.
If you want to go the F1 route, the F104 V2 is a great car, BUT if you can't get your hands on the TRF101 that would be the car to go with IMO. Also you definitely get great support for those F1s as well in the series. I might be mis-speaking on this one but I am pretty sure the F104V2 is the most popular car in the series.

Different race tracks... different crowds... You have your Tamiya crowd...your XRay guys... there's always been the preaching of "support your local hobby shop". So whatever your shop carries i suppose.
