NYC 2014 Convention Media Coverage
We are now planning 2015 convention in South Bend, IN for another great display of our beloved Checkers. We will keep you informed as the plans developed.
The 2014 NYC Convention is history that you may want to relive or hear what media services published. Below is the coverage by media that we know of:
The New York Times published an article about the CCCoA on June 19, 2014. To read the article follow the following link -- Checker Cabs Return to Gotham.
There was a second article published by The New York Times on June 17, 2014.
"Follow That Cab! Vintage Checkers Flock to Brooklyn
For a few hours, Box Street, a semi-industrial thoroughfare in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, seemed a whole lot like Kzoo.
Kzoo is the city-endorsed nickname (and its approved spelling) for Kalamazoo, Mich. — a place that Checker automobile enthusiasts know as the home of the beloved, boxy taxicabs that toiled in New York and other cities in their heyday from the 1950s until production ceased in 1982."

As all who attended the Box Street affair will tell you, IT WAS IMPRESSIVE! The local inhabitants were enamored by the diversity of displayed vehicles in one location especially in New York City.
Here is a list showing the media coverage we got for our convention and car show. Since most of these are hyperlinks, it does not make much sense to put this list in our printed newsletter. If anyone knows of other coverage we may have gotten, please let me know. Thanks, George Laszlo.
