For some time now, we have been sending die cast model cars and trucks to our clients – driving our practice forward. Since these have become such a favorite, we thought we’d occasionally spotlight some of the more popular vehicles. Here is a classic – the Checker A8 Marathon manufactured from 1956 to 1982 by the Checker Motors Corporation in Kalamazoo, Michigan. It remained virtually unchanged during its entire 26 year production. The taxi cab of choice in New York and many other U.S. cities, it provided a generous interior with handy fold down jump seats.
The Checker succeeded not because of its fancy looks or fast speed but because it was dependable, able to get its occupants to their destination at a good fare – something to keep in mind today, even when selecting your advisors. Reliability and fair fees remain the qualities that count.
