Most people might prefer a different Saturday night out ......... but I have to say I really enjoyed my Saturday night out in Queens at a big Taxi Garage yesterday ......... I love the privilege of being able to see what people are working on behind the scenes ......... as you know doubt are aware if you read this blog ... I especially enjoy anything to do with the New York City taxi industry ........ Ray here is a mechanic working away in the middle of the night keeping the classic Yellow Beast Cabs rolling 24/7 ...... he is keeping his companies fleet of Ford Crown Victoria's on the road despite the fact its late on Saturday night ........ he loves and respects those mega Crown Vic's .......... he says they are serious work horse vehicles ....... he could rebuild one from bits blindfolded ......... he is a fine bloke ........ he and Franklin a long time NYC cabbie from Trinidad tell me all about the Carnival celebrations in the Caribean and about West Indies Cricket :-))) ............ Hassan and Ashek and all the drivers who bring their vehicles in for a rapid check up ........ or limp in with something more serious for Ray to fix are also very friendly welcoming guys, like I say others might prefer a different kind of Saturday night out on the town ...... they might not chose this ........ but hey ....... call me crazy ........ I really enjoyed the privalege of being allowed to temporarily join up with and photograph this fraternity of cabbies and their mechanics in Queens in the middle of the night.

Cheers Jez XXX
