E-Series Taxi's?

Does anyone have any pics of some E-Series Taxis (EA -> EL)
Seems easy to find EL ones since they're still around, but can't find anything of older taxis!

Re: E-Series Taxi's?

Surprisingly I don't have any in my archive except a few faux photoshops. I remember a time when I was trying to find pictures so I could have a section to the site about special E series vehicles - taxis, cop cars, V8 supercars and so on.

Re: E-Series Taxi's?

It would probably be hard to find EA-ED taxis, I'm pretty sure theres a saftey law with taxis saying they can't be more than 7 years old. So your pretty much only going to see some very late model EF's and EL's. In Launceston I've seen Camry's, Statesman's, LTD's even an AU XR8 taxi. 2006 should see the faze out of all E-Series Cabs :(

Re: E-Series Taxi's?

No pics - but when I was back home in Geraldton last holidays I was in an EA Taxi which had done 1 million 400 thousand k's, it had been over the clock once and had done another 400 thousand on top of that :)
The driver said it was still on the original head, the original gearbox, original engine - suffice to say, even though I was magotted I couldn't believe it! the body was pretty knocked around, but other than that it looked like it was in decent condition.

Nick.

Re: E-Series Taxi's?

Glock. I used to live in Launcestion and I have been in the AU xr8 and it is co-driven by a couple of drivers and this guy was telling me that it was a ex cop car before it became a taxi, it has a chip in it that allows it to rev free-er. It has 220kw standard probably around 235-240kw, we had him doing 180 up the southern outlet (a long steep hill section of a highway) and a doughnut u-turn on the tarmac...AWESOME STUFF to see a taxi do!

Re: E-Series Taxi's?

Mmmm I have a pic of a EBII Police Car somewhere I could scan. I've only got a photo of my Dad's old XE Taxi I could post lol. I never got any pics of the EA, EF or EL.
