#lamleydaily – July 20, 2017
Leading up to the Matchbox Gathering Convention this week, it’s gonna be all Event Exclusives from years past, leading up to showcases on this year’s models.
Model: Matchbox Dodge Charger Pursuit
Line: 2014 Matchbox Gathering of Friends Exclusive
Where to get it: They pop up occasionally on ebay
Why it’s in the collection: I mentioned yesterday that the Porsche 914 Convention Exclusive was one of the cleanest done. Here is another one. Licensed Albuquerque Police livery (the event always takes place in the ABQ), with full front, rear, and roof tampos. The tail lights on the latest Dodge Chargers really stand out, so having them done here looks so good. One of Matchbox’s best police castings, looking as good as it ever will.

This might be a contender for my favorite Gathering emergency related deco exclusive. It is spot on! I saw one of these last year in the flesh and once again, Matchbox nailed it. Undoubtly the best deco of this casting in my opinion.
I think this is one of the best done emergency models along with last year’s BMW M5 Notarzt. I wouldn’t mind paying a bit more if Matchbox started doing full tampos like old times. But not more than what its worth. Matchbox, are you listening?
Well this pretty much goes completely contrary to my comment about the 914 gathering exclusive from yesterday (i.e. that I’m not a big fan of the gathering models) because this is an AWESOME exclusive. The only thing that could make this better is a light bar independent of the window piece, but that’s about it.
On of the favorite models oin my collection. I managed to even photograph the real car when i was in ABQ a couple years ago. I think you me and TIlley may be the only ones who DLM the model.
