Follow that Cab! : an American Icon comes to Hershey
Instantly recognized and dearly loved around the world, the Checker Taxi has earned a permanent place in American culture. Over 30 years after the last Checker rolled off the line in Kalamazoo, Michigan, the Checker is still embraced as the quintessential taxicab.
Now those taxis, and the other instantly-familiar models from the Checker Motor Company (1922-1982) are coming to the AACA Museum!
Join the Checker Car Club of America for a free car corral, right here on the grounds of the AACA Museum. Saturday, June 25, 2016, from noon to 4pm, Checker club members will have their cars out on display. Checker owners have a real “hands-on” car club. They feel that their cars were made to be driven hard, and so they’d love to show you around, let you have a seat, or maybe even a ride. If you’d like to get up close and personal with a real American workhorse, make a day of it at the AACA Museum. We’ll hail you a cab.
