Before Errol died, he unfortunitly had a bit of a fender bender and got side swiped. He fixed and painted the front guard that he found in Bundaberg and the front door, mirrors and chrome he purchaced from me! Dammo and Ernie from Fully Steeled Restorations took on the rear wheel arch and I must say they done a fantastic job.
Here is a photo of Ron and his wife on there wedding day. The year was 1939 the same year when Ron started his taxi service. His wife was 20 and he was 25.
This is Ron's first taxi, The Oldsmobile. I'm not too sure on the year it was made but I think it was in the late 30's.
The boy sitting on the bonnet is one of his sons, either Errol or Gilbit.
This photo was taken in the early 40's.
Ron said that he bought this car for 500 pound and used it as a taxi for 16 years. One day a chap wanted to buy it from him right or wrong so Ron sold the car for 600 pound, 100 more than what he paid for it.
Here is Errol's XB Falcon taxi. You can see his wife Annette on the drivers side and his three daughters on the other side.
This is one of my favorite photos. They used Starline Taxi signs.
