Fairway Taxi makes the Olympic opening ceremony complete

A PROPER London Black Cab!

A PROPER London Black Cab!

It was delightful to spot that when the BBC made the 5 minute film of James Bond escorting the Queen to the Olympic Opening Ceremony, they chose to use an iconic FX4/Fairway Driver London black cab rather than one of those nasty, plasticky new TX models.

It’s the Fairway FX4 that people know and associate with London, because in  various forms that’s the shape that has been on the streets of London for around 50 years!

Well done the BBC for getting it right! Click the picture to watch the video.
