1998 Racing Champions Police U.S.A. Series

I saw this Racing Champions Police U.S.A. 1960 Chevy Impala at Scale Model Supplies in June. I had always enjoyed this series and have a few of these in my collection from the late 1990s. When I realized the package had been slit open, I asked for a discount when I took it up to the counter. He reluctantly agreed and I’m glad he did. When I got it home and took it out of the blister to inspect it closer, the hood – which has badly cracked paint – fell off.

The following cars I picked up years ago when I was still taking them out of the packages. Kansas City is a great town and the ’66 Nova is one sweet ride, so this combination works well for me.

One of my all-time favorite cars, this beautiful tan 1960 Impala bears the State Patrol livery of my home state.

The Twin Cities are another of my favorite places. Here’s a nice ’57 Bel Air St Paul police black and white. This model also has badly cracked and flecked paint.

I display my North Dakota State Patrol car atop this limited edition Swifty’s Garage Greenlight International Durastar car hauler. I think it looks pretty great.
