If you were to buy, stick to the well known hobby quality brands such as Associated, Kyosho, Team Losi, Tamiya and Traxxas. Great kits with rc car parts to maintain and hop up your model to keep it running for years to come.
You can buy these from local hobby shops or from popular online rc stores.

But if it is a cheap rc toy you are looking for, try Nikko, Radio Shack or Tyco radio control cars. However most toy cars have crude controls, slow speed and lack of replacement parts. You can buy these in RadioShack, Target, Toys R Us and more.

While it is nice to play around your backyard or parking lot, try to get into rc car racing to feel the excitement of competition. There are many local racing events plus long running regional and international racing series such as the Tamiya World Championships.
