The wife and kids in the back of our new vehicle, Betsy an old green London cab that we inherited from Uncle Jeff. As well as having a certain cachet and a connection back to London town for us country dwellers, It's turned out to be a perfect mode or transport. There's lots of space for children, shopping and bikes, it's fairly economical, safe, solid and heavy and although it's far from speedy, other drivers generally keep out of your way. Best of all though, and what other car can do this? You can close the partition window and happily shut yourself off from those noisy passengers!
