Explaining why a checkered cab is so much more than just a vintage car. 🚖
Both my husband and I were spilling out stories of sitting backwards in the flip up seats. How we always wanted our parents to only take the checkered cab when hailing a taxi. For so many reasons this style of taxi was filtered out of the NYC taxi scene in the late 80’s and early 90’s. Childhood memories are wonderful. They are so innocent. 🚖
Childhood innocence’s is different for my son, @a_gentleman_grows He told us it wasn’t safe to ride backwards and not use a seatbelt. This was his innocence, his childhood experiences. At the same time, he said it must have been fun to do. Yes, yes it was, my child.
