WK2 Taxicabs - Hopefully Not a Trend! (Pics)
 
2 Attachment(s)
I couldn't believe my eyes. While driving through downtown San Francisco this morning, I saw a WK2 dressed up as a taxicab! Not a Laredo, but an Overland! Judging by the popularity of Ford Escape taxicabs in this city, let's hope this doesn't start a trend!

Interesting that it's a hemi. I guess we're not the only ones that like them - cabbies do too.

Interesting.

All the cab companies around here are downsizing the cars in their fleets due to high gas prices.

Whats wrong with using them as Taxis? Would you rather sit in a piece of shit? Or something luxury??

Id prefer the luxury

I once saw a Mercedes as NYC yellow taxi. Don't remember the model but I think it was 400-something

The Ford Escape cabs are usually hybrids, which makes some sense. I'd guess this is just another indy cab operator making his car payments. Gas bills have got to be ridiculous in stop/go traffic all day though...

No matter what vehicle, after a couple of weeks as a cab it's shit.
