Our cottage neighbor in Wisconsin had a “civilian sedan with opera windows and vinyl top as their seasonal driver. One of the local realtors used an 8 door wagon to tour new listings. The last time I haled a Checker was early 90”s in Chicago and NYC. It appears that the cab companies had exhausted the supply of old cop cars (Impala and Crown Vics) and moved on to Toyota Prius variants in the “big cities. Checker was THE quintessential American cab.
