Taxis In Transition

Found these photos few years back. The old and tired Paykan taxis are being replaced by the locally produced Kia Pride & Iran Khodor's Samand.

Mountain Gazelle

Advert for the Singer Gazelle (1967-70) version of the Chrysler/Rootes Arrow series. The Gazelle was based on the entry level Hillman Minx model, carried the 1496cc engine but it was poshed-up with the wood dash.

Dutch Gazelle

Amazing photo from the incredible archive of Michiel V taken in Zwolle, Netherlands 1972.

I had to consult with my ArrowHead experts on this one. It looks like that the door badge reads Gazelle (68+ Gazelle new style script), which makes this a Sunbeam Gazelle. I was under impression that "Gazelle" was only sold under Singer brand, I don't have any material to support this "Sunbeam Gazelle" phenomenal, but I am sure we will get to the bottom of it somehow. Just remember that in the wonderful world of Arrow series you find something new everyday! ;)

Special Thank to Michiel V for uploading all those amazing photos.

Count The Paykans#61

Photo was sent to me by Professor David Yaghoubian (CSU San Bernardino): "This is from my hotel balcony in Tehran, 2002. Corner of Motahari and Vali Asr. Spot something that is not a Paykan! I take the same photo every trip from approximately the same balcony, and lately I usually can’t find a single Paykan :( Makes the ones I do spot all the more special."
Thank You Professor! :)
