Default London Taxi PT Cruiser

So I was out at the grocery the other night, and when I got back to the car I saw this parked across from me:







I've looked at tons of photos online but had never seen this conversion before. Although it was dark, I could tell that it was pretty well executed. The front fenders were fiberglass, as was the hood. There was a "taxi" sign on the roof and a "hump" or trunk extension applied to the back.

Upon doing some internet research at home, I came up with a company called AAT Cars that produced these for a delivery service in San Francisco. Here's a link to one article about them...

Not sure how this one made it to Vermont, but it sure looked cool. I've always wanted to convert my headlights to a more "old School" look and this pretty successfully accomplishes that.

Anyways, thought I'd share for anyone who hasn't seen these before...

That's funny you made this thread as I just posted a pic of one in another thread after I found it while searching the internet:

I don't care for the back so much, but the front end has a cool look. It helps me to get a vision of how it could look with the round headlights anyway...
