Built by: Eric Slaughter in Raytown,
I built "the Working Taxi" to be an all-purpose vehicle. Included
is everything an all-purpose guy might need traveling from town to town.
In a trip to California, I found the Taxi partially built. It had already
been painted brown with the black & white checker pattern on the seats.
I liked the start on it, so I filled this sweet ride with some 'slight'
modifications and accessories to make traveling in the Tijuana Taxi
as sweet as can be!
Guitar - scratch built.
Sombrero - scratch built.
Black & white piglets and Pink pig- found
in a craft supply store
Lizard - alligator found in an old 3 in
1 kit and modified.
Bongos - also found in an old 3 in 1 kit.
Small cage on roof - scratch built, nothing
Bucket, Shovel, Medicine box, Gas can, Extinguisher,
Shotguns and Hat in back seat were all found in a parts bin.
CB radio - could have been any mid 70s
Antennas on right and left steps - same
Horns over back seat - Li'l Stogie kit
Injectors and headers were slightly hollowed
Beer Wagon keg halved and placed in the
rear seat area with steins
Kit came with single fenders, I doubled
them up to allow for some wider skins.
Fog lamps over the roof sign are from a
'32 Ford kit
Front fenders were taken from a Paddy Wagon
kit cause I liked the way they looked.
That's the "Working Taxi"!! Hope you like it as much as I
enjoyed making it.
