A tattered mid-1960s Checker taxicab didn’t reach its destination on this day. Checkers changed very little from year to year during this era, keeping the same utilitarian shape and styling for more than 20 years. Checker stuck to the taxi business between 1923 and 1959, then offered passenger cars from 1960 until 1982. It’s doubtful the cabbie collected a tip after this incident.
