LMPD Replica Cruisers on Sale for Charity
(June 22, 2004) -- The first model replicas of the newly designed Louisville Metro Police Department cruisers are being sold to the public at several Kroger stores. Proceeds will go to local charities.
The 1/43 scale model replicas of LMPD's marked cruiser have been produced by Gearbox Toys and Collectibles. They are $15.00 each. Each replica has over 60 parts and is packaged in a customized box with LMPD emblems. The first 10,000 boxes are labeled "Established January 6, 2003".
There is also another special edition of 2500 model replica vehicles that include a Habitat for Humanity Louisville decal. Habitat for Humanity is one of the charities that will benefit from the sale of the model cars. The Louisville Metro Police Department is also sponsoring the construction of a Habitat house for a Louisville family to own later. Construction begins later this summer.
