    Here's one we don't see every day in the States...a good old box Chevy in Japanese security livery. I'm not sure if Police or Military Defense (Air Force?), but it is an unusual piece hiding in my collection. Majorette is well known for creating Nation specific models that can be hard to find outside of the target audience. I think this may be the old NovaCar casting that was incorporated into the Majorette line prior to the flood. I don't know if this model is still used in the range, I haven't seen any new issues in a long time.
    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.

    Nice, unique one Wes. This is for the Japanese Auto Federation - they provide Japanese translations of foreign drivers licenses, provide road service (have their own wreckers), etc. Think AAA with more perks.

      Very good! So I learned something!

        Nice. Looks like opening doors as well.

          Have one in the same paint scheme but different wheels. Mine was purchased retail in Indonesia (not by me), but I guess they just get the Japanese market assortment there, because they also got me a Japanese police, and a UN police car there, but don't know if the UN car would be Japanese market though, because it seems to be a very scarce variation.


          Sorry about the scarred image, I saved it back to my computer when I got my laptop, but unfortunately PB already messed it up, but don't be scared to click on it for larger size, it wont take you to PB.

            Warning - if you open these and try the candy, my granddaughters say it is not that great. It is interesting that the very hard to find UN car was part of the Kabaya candy assortment models.

              Very cool. I miss finding these generation Majorettes here in the states. Jewel-Osco was the only place I ever found them.
