The colors are so bright and fun!  How happy would you be climbing into this everyday?
I would ride in this taxi any day!
How cool is this?
It is appropriately called Paradise Taxi.  I wish I could see the before pix of this great transformation.

I was on a recent vacation in FL and came across this set of hot wheels.  I just had to share it with my fellow junker friends.  I knew you all would appreciate it!  Someday I will have my own set of wheels like this...just awesome!  It was on old taxi that an artist named "Kristina" painted.  Fabu!

I might just do the paint job it needs myself and see if I can have a Florida Funky Paint Job competition with this car you found! If people ask what color my truck is, I could say all of them! Thanks for sharing this little gem on wheels! Posted: 10:37 pm on May 20th

I think my parents would have loved to have this car while we were growing up (7 girls and only ONE car for the longest time.....). My Mom would many times tell us she felt more like a taxi driver than a mother!!! gailmarie Posted: 1:29 pm on May 18th
