Cab #3005

Date: July 7, 2006
From: Near North Side
To: Wicker Park

The Cab: What's that smell? I like it, but I can't place it. Oh, there it is! A strawberry car freshener tree in the back window. Mmm, strawberry.

Hey, what's that sticker on the little coin window slat thing: It says "Helper."

Hey, what's that little metal plate screwed into the back seat separation unit? It says "Whip It Out. J-Fold. Original Sportswallet."

Hey, there's another one: "KGT Bumper Guards, Long Island."

Just below the black, oscillating, Axics 12-volt fan.

There's a lot to look at in here, for a cab with no actual decoration.

The Driver: A nice guy. I don't realize how nice until it occurs to me halfway through a cell phone conversation that he's turned off his music (Middle Eastern rap?) for the duration of my call.

The Driving: Solid, though not flashy.

Overall Rating: 4 extended arms.
