Subtitle A Century of Service
The American Taxi has been providing a vital public service for 100 years! Enjoy the Taxi experience through photographs and the history of famous taxi marques, such as Yellow, General, Checker, DeSoto, Packard, Plymouth, Ford, & Studebaker - many minor makes are also represented with forgotten names like Rockwell, Murphy, Oakland, Huppmobile and Stearns Knight. Oddball experiments, unusual taxis, lights, meters, and taxi memorabilia are highlighted. A walk through time illustrates the effect of regulations on taxis and how that led to technical advances and body changes.
