Taxis of Eugene: Toyota Previa – The Spoiled Shot – Or Is It?

CC 189 021 800

I was framing up to shoot the two little guys in the back, when this Previa taxi rolled by. So I decided to pull the trigger anyway. I’ve been meaning to do a proper story on these for a while; as there are so many of these in Eugene, perhaps more of them than any other type of taxi. How appropriate is that, given how old Toyota vans seem to congregate here? Oregon Taxi started accumulating used Previas years ago, and built up quite a fleet of used ones, but that seems to have peaked; probably hard to keep finding them anymore in California. I should call them up and see how many miles the most-traveled one has.
