Uh, excuse the delayed reply but just came across this page in this thread!
Karl, is this actually a Bbay taxi in the flesh (or should I say metal! )??!!

Looks comparitively better than the newer taxis there.....! But are cars as old as this still allowed to ply as taxis (I thought they didnt allow transport vehicles more thn 15 yrs old on the roads??)

The emblem looks like one of the Maybach. Tried to search a lot, but the closest model to the following car was the SW38. Check the bottom of this link: 1931-1936

The 4th pic resembles the following car.

Thats a custom job on an 80s Padmini. All said and done there are a lot of thoughtfully executed touches on this that left me quite impressed. Overall, it still doesnt work for me though.

Lolssss i did for sometime till the car looked kinda out of shape for me. My knowledge on vintages is lame, just proved it . Actually the emblem on the front grill made me think its a Maybach. Anyways, agree with karl, the car doesnt appeal me either.
