Check out that station wagon in the lower right corner of the photograph. Isn't that a car made by the Checker Cab Company? I didn't know they made station wagons! I'm right, am I not? It is a Checker, isn't it?
But I was correct about the car though. It is a Checker station wagon. When I was looking around for my first car in the early 70's, I did know of a dealership nearby that sold the Checker Marathon, but it was a six or seven thousand dollar car back then. And you could get a nice Plymouth Duster for 4 grand. But I didn't even have the four thousand until much later. And by then all it would get you was a Honda Civic "wagon". (Which was exactly the same size as a modern Honda Fit.) So I bought the Honda, and told myself that the big and thirsty V8 in the Checker was too expensive to run, let alone buy. But they sure were built like a tank, and I'd probably still have it, if only I could have scraped up the extra 2 or 3 grand it would have set me back.
