Lane, that taxi is a Checker Marathon. They were made from 1959-'82, when Checker went out of business.

About 90% of their production went to taxi use. Some people bought them as private cars.

Rom,

Coming to Desert Scale Classic 8, eh?

Well, you'll have the singular pleasure of making my acquaintance, too. Or, vice versa. Either way! Look forward to meeting you ... and ... leave your schedule open after the show ... you're invited to the barbeque party and Moonlight Modelers meeting following DSC8. Yeah, Chris, too! :P

We'll plan on seeing you there! It's gonna be the place to be seen.

Ok lets see here. I'm 12, my name's Lane if anyone didn't know.
The first one is me shooting my grandpa's Colt .38.
The second one is me and my best friend. His cousins took him shooting and brought me. I think he has a .410 and I got my 15-22 KICK BRASS.
The third one is when me and my family took a trip up to Silverton on the Durango-Silverton train. We took that picture by a taxi. I have no idea what kind of car or year it is.


I used to live in aztec. Spent a lot of time in Durango and Silverton as well.

Ahhh I see hardware built in my neighborhood. Space shuttles were built in Palmdale. I drive past the facility 2x a weekday. Every time they landed in the west, I could see them coming in from my house and hear the double sonic boom. Then they would fly the 747 with the shuttle piggyback at very low altitude past my house a couple of miles away on the way towards Florida.

Ole Snake is looking good there (he still looks good enough to climb into a flopper even today, complete with sun tan). Mongoose is looking a little chubby, but hey at least he is still alive and kicking. I would LOVE to meet those guys myself. Nice photo!

I thought it said, "Don't get mailed." Which, if you think about today's postal service, could be the same thing!




:lol: = That's more of that humor stuff, Jim.
