Cab of Abandon
I climbed in a taxi today that has been circling the drain for years. My normal limousine limo company pissed me off by raising their rates beyond what my company could reasonably reimburse so I’m trying out new airport transportation. The travel bucket that showed up to get me did nothing but disappoint.
The driver looked like he might just live round the clock in the thing. As we drove I was being rocked to sleep by his unusual swerving driving style in combination with the obvious exhaust leak. Add the deafening muffler and engine noises to the odometer stuck and not moving off of what looked like 160,382.4 miles (me thinks someone disconnected the device or it just gave up) and you have a car that junk yards would turn away.
The picture won’t do it justice but I think I captured his awesome hand placement. This technique made for some intense highway ramp experiences.
