Louis La Vache will know. In the meantime, it's pretty cheerful in all that snow.

It's a Checker. According to this site only 453 limosines were built by the Checker Motors Corp. of Kalamazoo, Michigan. The last regular Checker taxi cab was retired in NYC in 1999.

Very cool car - love that paint job!

David C is correct, it's a souped up Checker (with a red bumper - ouch!). Reminds me of the time I got stuck in a snow drift in Darien, Connecticut, in one and had to be towed out by a Jeep. They weren't good in the snow!

A brilliantly painted vehicle!


STOLEN GOODS

A damsel who loved shades of yellow
One Monday let out a loud bellow:
“My gold is all gone,
My amber and fawn—
Just wait till I find that vile fellow!”

I love this car. I want it. I think I'll go and sell a ton of cookies and use the cashiola to buy it. What a gem! I've been so sick with that mammoth cold that's been going around, so I haven't been reading or commenting much on my fav blogs, but I just wanted to say I'm loving all of your snow shots.
