New York Taxi Story

I sat and looked over Sandy damage in NY City, and there's this one shot. Taxis....under water.

Every single one of those.....have to be condemned, and dumped.  They ought to be crushed....but I'm willing to bet that trucks are going to be brought in and these will be repainted, and shuffled out to Mississippi or Alabama....to sell as cheap cars with high mileage.

Yeah, there's going to be some illegal stuff about this.  Yeah, there's likely to be a fair amount of rust noticed after six months.  Yeah, there's bound to be a funny mildew smell with the car.

The question is....would you spend $1k for a former New York taxi....just as a junker for a year or two?  A guy from Bama would pause and spend two minutes thinking about this.  It'd be hard to pass up the deal.
