This picture is for our Weblog a “PRIMEUR”, with thanks to our member George Crook, who’s son did send it to his Dad. It is from a Chinese Newspaper(title not know) but I am sure they forgive us the publication as it is good PR for the industry.

Britsh Classics – An article on the London taxi(cab) models FX3 and FX4

British-Classics-Jan.2013-English-cabs-FX3-and-Fairway-at-Cologne-Germany

This article came to light due to our member Karsten Quaschnig at Cologne, Germany. It shows his FX3 and a FX4 owned by our member Andreas Hagemeijer.

It is a very good article. Thank you Karsten for doing what you did to make this possible.

Karsten and Andreas are regular visitors of our Waalwijk Event in June each year and we hope to welcome them with the cabs again this year! No doubt Kartsen will bring a copy of the mag along.

I posted the cover of the magazine, in case any (German) readers want to order it. It also consists of good pictures.
