About the Checker Taxi Stand

Climb In (watch your head)...

Welcome to the ALL-NEW Checker Taxi Stand. Your one-stop source for information on automobiles from the Checker Motors Corporation in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Please note that this site is not operated by Checker Motors and is a personal site for entertainment and information purposes only.

History of the Site...

When I was a child, I used to go to New York City all the time to visit my grandparents and relatives. This was the early 1970s and back then if you wanted a cab in Manhattan, you wanted a Checker. No two ways about it. I remember that we would wait and wave off other cabs on until a Checker came along. Now those were the days. The huge yellow taxicab with its checker stripes and jump seats was just amazing.

When the World Wide Web came around, I searched for sites with any information on Checkers and came up with a very very short list. So I decided to start the Checker Taxi Stand, and here it is! I'll be making lots of changes to the site real soon so please check back often.
