FROM COPS TO CABBIES

Corgi Juniors c. 1975 Buick Regal Taxi, No. 14, made in England circa 1978.

_
The American television series “Kojak” spawned an unusual die-cast car…a mid-1970s Buick Regal. But that’s the car which Detective Theo Kojak drove. The show was wildly popular, and Corgi decided to replicate his car for collectors a couple of years before the taxi you see here.
The show ended in 1978, just about the time this bright yellow taxi appeared. Thank you Telly Savales!

I think it's time for a little #jdm in here. In particular the last generation (for now as we may see a new one in real life next year) #toyota #supra (A80 designation,1993-2002 production) which was made by #matchbox in various forms in a shorter time span (1995-2000). The blue front version is from the 1998 Sleek Riders 5-pack in blue sporting a rather unusual side tampo. It was based on a concept they were developing a few years earlier called "Chromers". It was going to be a set of vehicles all sporting a chrome style finish, with each casting coming in 2 versions. The #toyotasupraturbo was going to be either blue & pink with same type of tampo design, yet across the roof instead. It was an evolution of the Matchcaps series that debuted in 1995 featuring chrome models with fancy roof designs. 1996 was to have seen models with coloured chrome finishes rather than plain chrome. But the project got cancelled & they never got made. I do find it funny how they made models for the 1998 5-pack almost the same as the canceled set but moved the tampos from top to sides. I guess the Chromers set was going to be packed in blisters with roof pointing out (as Matchcaps were, purely a guess as I never saw a prototype package) & 5-packs have models upright with the sides pointing out.
