      Thanks, E. It’s not really a Checker. Not really a cab either. It’s an old DeSoto the owner decided to paint as a cab. It’s my kind of cab though, no meter.

    That’s some vintage iron there, Ken. Checker Marathon? I was too lazy to look it up but it looks like one. Not too many people will remember the AMX!

    Love these automotive abstracts, Ken. That old Checker is something you don’t see very much anymore. The hood ornament on that Desoto is totally awesome. What a sleek design. Love the grille in that old Ford as well. Looks early to mid 30’s.

    Where are you finding these old classics? Great stuff, man. 🙂

      Thanks, Jimi. The Checker is actually an early 1950’s DeSoto also, painted to look like the Checker cab.
      There are a few Cruise Nights not far from my home but mostly I attend the Damascus show each Friday. It’s all for charity and a worthwhile cause. There are usually 100-200 cars each Friday but there is no competition. The show is well attended and there is usually a DJ blasting ’50s and ’60s music all night.
