      Looking into buying a 1988 cabby! Need info on pretty much the whole car ex: common problems, things to look for when driving it, etc etc. Thanks in advance!

      I don't know if you ever meet courtney at the JCWs meet, but she owns a near perfect triple white cabby. She knows a bit about them and does the a lot of the work herself. She's on her honeymoon right now, but you should make a trip down to the JCW's meet just to talk to her if you pick the cabby up
