I wanted to find a photo of one of the Cleveland Yellow cab company checker cabs but I could not, so anyway the point of flash back Friday is this what a taxi cab looked like back in the day not a Ford Crown Victoria, or a Chevy Impala but and Honest To God CHECKER MARATHON CAB. My Dad was a Cleveland Taxi Cab Driver. Hell I even drove a cab for a while when I lived in California. I had the pleasure of driving a cab for Mr. Erol DeBock’s City Cab Company in West Sacramento California way back in the late 70’s. When I find a picture of my cab I will post it.
