Interesting combination and certainly a good representation of Art Deco.

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.

@nickies 

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.
