Thanks to Checker Cab author  and historian Bryon Babbish, there is a record of the 2006 Checker Cab show at the Gilmore.  Recently found in a stash of materials in an unopened mailer, this writer was pleasently surpised at its contents.

This show was one of the last shows produced by the Checker Motors old guard.  Thanks to the hard work of former Checker Motors Corp. plant manager John Logan and his wife Lola the event went off without a hitch.

Credit to Bryon Babbish for spending time with many of the show participants.  Its was nice to see the late Pete Talanca and other old Checker friends like Mike Reiley.  It was also great to hear some of the Checker stories shared by show participants.
