Re: New Member

This car has 15 inch wheels that do not have the clips or notches to fit dog dish caps. I read the comments elswhere on the board about 15 inch wheels not being an option, but I think a possible foreign built taxi may be an exception.

Re: New Member

Thank you for your research into the dealer name and posting the other photos. I went over to the forwardlook board and attempted an update, but my pictures are too large to be uploaded there. Are there any freebie editors to easily shrink files for uploading there?

My name is Ed Prichard and I am currently living in east Tennessee and am trying to get a 59 taxi back on the road. It is an undesignated model 4 door which apparently served as a taxi in Atlanta in it's early life. It has been stored since 1977, so it's not as rusty as it could be. It has a Perkins...
