Best and worst of Art Deco. Love the '40 Lincoln Zephyr. The Model A Checker has a face only a mother could love. Then again art is in the eyes of the beholder.
@parisi50 I agree, the front looks like one of those creatures that dwell at the bottom of the ocean. Someone speculated that it helped to identify it as a cab from a distance.
I don't collect taxi cabs but if I did, that would be the one that I would get. I like the unusual- to a degree.
For those who are wondering what is the background to the pictures..... this is the hard case of "Cord Complete" book representing the terrazzo floor pattern of the Cord Museum.
Thanks for the info. I thought it made a nice background, and wondered about its source.

@jaygolan the design of the Checker had a purpose. To make them easy to fix and keep them on the road. They had a similar front end to the Lincoln in many ways but a Cord body look in others.
The Automodello model is very well done and far better detailed and quality control assembly than the NBCC Lincoln but they look nice together.
