The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch

Checker Marathon Taxicab
Checker and Yellow Cabs summarise the American Scene. The Checker A8/Marathon was produced between 1956 and 1982. This 1:43rd scale model is by ERTL and although accurate in appearance is a rather basic moulding.
