Hi John
Love the concept, but can't see from the elevations if you are intending them to have an interior rather than a solid block of wood. My grandkids and friends all like to have their own Lego or other people driving the cars. Increases the realism and imagination for even more fun. I am happy with the 12" size as being manageable for all ages.

Aw, John, you know I will make the 12"ers half size.  Now if I had little ones playing with them I would go ahead and make the 12" versions.

It would be nice if the plans included two or more sizes.

What about a Play Pal Size version?
 
I can scale down plans to the size I want I have done it several times. With cars, I usually scale it to the available wheel sizes. You sometimes lose some detail by going to a smaller size, but that is ok as long as it is still a playable toy.
 
What got me thinking about the size? One of the recurring search terms in my shop is for 'pocket trucks' and 'pocket cars.' I am assuming that they are searching for toys that will fit in a child's pocket.

Hi John
Love the paddy wagon and FBI Limo
I have just finished the gangster car and open top car
I have enjoyed making these and will make some changes to my next lot. Make the sides 1/4” and increase the other sizes to fit
