I was driving around Burbank today, and went past this Cash Cab:
So if I ride in that cab, I get to be on a gameshow?
Oh my….totally. If you want to get molested. Some people are in to that…
Why would you do that to a beetle that looks so much like Herbie??
Herbie The Sexual Predator Bug?
Not a gameshow, Unsolved Mysteries.
Lol…NOT sure what makes me more nervous…the badly written cab signs or the fact this thing likely only has one working door…
Well, now we know what line of work Mr. Horton got into after he sold the bike shop.
Is that the mythical VW bug from Kevin Smith’s Mallrats?
Excellent use of Diff'rent Strokes reference, sir.
It isn’t even yellow!
That cab has a dent in it.
Wil, you are usually pretty good at spotting scams for people, but I really think you should take a second look.
First of all, the cab is a model with bolted fenders, and the California Board of Taxicab Commissioners is very clear in its restriction of taxi cabs to vehicles with welded fenders.
The second indicator of trouble is that the vehicle has no toplight, a violation of the Board’s resolution 403.
Third, because the vehicle is neither a Ford Crown Victoria or Mercury Grand Marquis, it violates resolution 401(b) insofar as it has not acquired CARB’s ULEV rating.
Fourth, rule 409 demands exterior signage for the cab clearly indicating that the driver only carries five dollars in change on his person. This cab is in violation.
Fifth, the duct tape is not of uniform color. This violates good taste.
Finally, although it is difficult to tell from this photo alone, it is safe to assume that the driver violates the taxi cab driver standards of dress requiring that he wear black dress pants, insofar as he is unlikely to be wearing pants of any sort.
I hope that this clears up your misunderstanding. Obviously, it is a very clever ruse, and the common citizen can’t be expected to catch all of those little details.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got some reruns of The Bloodhound Gang to go solve.
Looks like a nice solid 1500. Don’t see many of them around my neck of the woods. I’ve had both a 1302 and a 1303s and then later a 1971 type 2 bus. I’m a little obsessed with anything air cooled. Good pic!
But it says CASH CAB right on the side!! You can't just go putting that on anything, man.
Huh. I missed that.
I yield the field of battle to you in shame. I don’t even know why I questioned the legitimacy in the first place.
And I didn’t solve the Bloodhound Gang mystery either. Apparently, Klaus Nomi and a time machine had nothing to do with the dead man’s pigeon.
I’ve got to find another line of work.
SO weird. I looked at this pic and thought “hey, that house looks familiar…” Look out the window… YUP, right across the street.
Yes. Name that Smell.
