    Gisima is made in Spain, and among the Spanish brands perhaps the most budget minded. They were also not above being heavily influenced by other makers such as Hot Wheels, Matchbox and Majorette. Case in point is this Monaco Police, which while not a direct copy, clearly has heavy influence in all but the details at the ends and the wheels.
    The image file limits have been reset. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. I've set the pixels for no more than 1000 across the longest side, so if you resize to that all should be well. (The limits are larger than what I typically use, and my images turn out just fine, so I know it shouldn't be a problem)

    Thank you for your understanding.

It is based on the 1978 California Highway Patrol Dodge Monaco. It has the pushbar, the staked headlights and the grille of the Monaco. There is a light bar on top together with some lights and sirens. This casting is known under many different names, depending on the theme and paint scheme: Fire Chaser, Fire Chief, Highway Patrol, and Gleamer Patrol, for which i
