In 1974 our family purchased a 1970 A12-E Checker Marathon before we went to England. We owned it until 1986. I drove it myself for about two years while I was in the USN in Ventura, California.

as i've said before, i really like these cars. i don't know if they're any "good," but i figure that there's a certain minimal reliability required of anything that's going to be a taxi cab.

a lot going on with the setting here, and i like it.

I love the checker cab. The kitten is just icing on the cake.

Sweet Checker, digging the color and the dogdishes. Cute 'lil furball too-has good taste in cars to take shelter under.

I drove Checker cabs in NYC for two summers in the early 70's. Most of the cabs the company had- this was Valentine Cab- had in excess of 200 K on them, no power steering and rode as if they were going to self destruct at any moment. They were basically tanks- nearly bullet- proof and impossibly uncomfortable, but they got it done every day!
