Default Taxi!

I thought you guys might like this... the local taxi company uses Bonnevilles as their taxi cars... that is actually where i bought mine from, they were going to use my bonn as a taxi but their insurance company wouldn't insure any car under a 93... I have carded the cars but i dont think they have shown up... Here is some proof...

Kinda a bad pic but you can see both the cars...


A better shot...

What trim are those taxivilles

I think its kinda neat to see em as taxis. What a good choice for someone who has to stay in the car all day and drive

why? Bonnevilles are designed and proven to run and run and run. They are perfect for a job like that.
