1967, 1968 and 1969 Checker Taxicabs   The Checker endures like San Francisco’s cable cars and the gondolas of Venice, if largely only in memory here in New York and in a good number of other American cities. Manhattan’s beloved, own ‘urban unicorn’, it continues to enchant us.

Three vintage Checker and DeSoto taxicabs – property of FilmCars – outside The Plaza Hotel for filming British Airways' "Fairytale in New York: A Very Kevin Christmas" event for four lucky and inspiring children. 

FilmCars was commissioned to work with the art department in charge of styling one of our Checker taxicabs for Lady Gaga to arrive in to all of her Roseland Ballroom performances in NYC, 2014.
