April 2004 - Today I had the honor of spending time with John,
a real-life Colorado Springs taxi driver in Colorado Springs.
He took me for a drive and let me take pictures of his yellow taxi cab.
I love the the large vacant light and notice the bright headlight
in the top photos, for this taxi used to be police car! :)
A nice photo of the taxi - a bright yellow Chevrolet Lumina.
The dashboard and special taxi meter.
A notice about the camera system.
Check the bullet hole in his windshield!
John only works mornings and afternoons in Colorado Springs,
but some occasions, another driver had using his cab at night and
that's when it happened. Notice the interesting bottom photo - I was sitting
in the passenger seat and got the bullet hole skewing the view of
the road at Fillmore & El Paso in Colorado Springs.
Special thanks to John for giving me a ride around town.
Years later, I would think about this day when
I enjoyed a limousine throughout the day in Phoenix, AZ in a 1987 Cadillac Limousine.
Adjacent photo: John pulled over to add air to his tire.
John showed me some of the "behind the scenes" stuff, such as cabbies'
taxi zones with this Colorado Springs map.
