Checker in New Movie.... 2 years, 6 months ago #14847

Was home in Canada last week and noticed a review for a movie called 'Dr. Cabbie' (filmed in Toronto). Doesn't look like it will be winning any Oscars anytime soon, but it does have a Checker in it: www.facebook.com/Dr.Cabbie

I notice it says 'Marathon' on the front fender. CO-OP is a Toronto taxi company that's been around for a long time (55 years according to their website). I remember them when I lived in Toronto, though I don't think Checkers ever ran the streets of Toronto (I remember a lot of Chryslers and Dodges back in the day). So this particular Checker is not re-creating an historic Toronto taxi.

A propos of nothing, here is an interesting blog I found: www.blogto.com/city/2011/04/a_visual_his...of_toronto_taxicabs/
