Model history[edit | edit source]

The model was retooled in 2015 for easier assembly. The removable white TAXI sign on the top was replaced by a smaller sign which was now part of the window assembly.

Card description[edit | edit source]

  • A priceless gem has been stolen on 5th Avenue and the crook has jumped into a getaway vehicle. With the suspect in sight, you grab a Crown Victoria taxi and begin the hot pursuit. Its powerful V8, 250-hp engine make it the perfect ride to catch this crook and save the day!
    —From the 2010 and 2011 City Action cards
