When you get tired of hiking, it is time to head home. But if you can't find your car, or if your rusted steed has rolled over and died, you may need to call a cab! Start looking for a CHECKER CAB.



Your destination is to find an original Checker Cab. Not one just named "Checker." We are hunting for the original Checker Car Company cabs that were so popular years ago.

The coordinates are for the Kalamazoo Valley Museum which houses one of the last Checkers ever to be manufactured. If you visit the museum, feel free to log the visit as a find as well.

Find a Yellow Cab, or any other Checker Cab and post a picture with you and your GPS in it as well as the coordinates of where you spotted the cab. The cab does not have to be in commission or operable. But if you find one that is still running, take a ride and enjoy the nostalgia of these roomey vehicles.

And don't forget to leave a handsome tip!

I recently visited New York in hopes of finding a Checker Cab. Well forget that idea as there were none that I could see. When I got back to Colorado I found out our Governor has a Checker Cab he has been driving back when he was mayor. Who Knew? 39 43' 47.0388" -104 58' 51.9054"

On my way home from Geowoodstock XII in Lakeland, FL, I stopped at the New York Deli for a friend's first deployed Munzee.

And guess what? There was a NYC Checker Cab sitting outside.





Thanks and Happy Trails!

I have been to the Museum in Kalamazoo many times but it has been many years since I was a passenger in a cab. The one I found is mostly used for advertisement but it does still run and has current license plates. Most of the time it can be seen in front of the restaurant on Route 30 in Warsaw, IN.

Visited the museum and relived the many rides I've had in Checkers. Not the best looking vehicle but they sure made great cabs. This is also a great place to bring the kids. Thanks...Lindave
