From the second episode of the first season of the television series Taxi, dispatcher Louie DePalma (Danny DeVito) crouches under a 1969 Checker Taxi in the garage. These older Checkers seemed to always be around the garage in some state of disrepair, while the newer Checkers — the ones with government-mandated “battering-ram” bumpers, are the ones usually seen being driven around New York by the show’s cast of cab drivers. The series ran from 1978-1983.
