  Rummaging around in my storage area today, I found (while sneezing) this oldie:

That's a 1997, also with that date on the license plate and the copyright.  Here's something else that tickled me:

When was the last time you got anything for $4.15?  (Including a gallon of gas!)  And those with sharp eyes might note that the price sticker originated with Asheville (NC) Diecast, and Fremont Brown knew how to make a buck.  I also like the state seal on the car, as expected, but also on the Road Champs card.

Wonder what else I've got back there?  Stay tuned?

Very nice ! A great re-discovery on this real bargain. Those tough Caprices made for excellent police cruisers and this models captures that look well.

I posted my THP cruisers a while back, including Road Champs. The package for this one had an Asheville Diecast sticker, I used to buy a lot from them.

These plentiful and bargain priced models called out for a station wagon conversion,  so I built one.
