For the past 2 decades a rather special Checker A11 New York taxi has been cruising the streets of Cape Town. It's the only such cab in all of Africa, but that's only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to interesting trivia related to this particular car. Sit back and let owner Dieter Losskarn tell you about its undercover drug-busting duties in Manhattan, as well as its illustrious Hollywood career.
With production that spanned from 1959 to 1982, the Checker A-series taxi is one of the most recognisable American cars of all time, even though most people don't know much about the company that made them, Checker Motors.
Owner Dieter Losskarn highlights the Checker A11's long production run and largely unchanged styling as one of its core historical attractions, but a young Losskarn first fell in love with the Checker when he was a small boy growing up in Germany, and saw "its friendly eyes" in a movie. He told his dad back then that he'd own one in the future.
Now you can own a piece of New York nostalgia with this print featuring a stunning image captured by Justin Pinto in "downtown Woodstock". Available as an A2 or A3 and printed on high quality paper with a satin finish, this print looks best behind glass and with a thin frame (not included).
