    Anybody collect/trade 1:43 scale patrol cars?

    I've never been a collector, but these have peaked my interest lately.

    I should switch to 1:43. If I get another 1:18 for the office my wife is gonna skin me.

    I used to collect Road Champs patrol cars, years ago. I have a couple of boxes of them stored somewhere.

    I started to pick up the state police cars for every state, but my interest waned and it became hard to find them in the stores. There's probably a website dedicated to this sort of thing, but I ever went that far with it.

    The road champs were takin off the market several years ago. You can find several companies that make them and some departments that do sell them.

    I collectsome just to collect, nothing in particular.

    There are some people out there that will custom make one for your agency. Usually it just requires some clear digital pics of the car you want replicated. I've seen a few done that way and they usually turn out well.

    I just got one for my birthday in march. It's really cool. Most definitely will not come out
    of the box though, I think only 1000 were made. It’s a Davenport, Iowa patrol car. It’s
    the city in which I live, and hopefully in a few years I’ll have a job here too! We have
    black patrol cars, but there’s a rumor that they might switch back to white.
