Diecasts and Sunlight

I know that you shouldn't have your cars in direct sunlight, but can anyone be more specific about this? If someone has their drapes open and some sunlight (not really "direct") falls on the cars, is this okay? How much outside light can the cars tolerate? I try to move them around, too.

The direct sun can also "fog" the clear plastic or as Winston says, the heat can even distort the shape.
There are all sorts of chemical interactions going on with these cars and heat can only make things worse.
