So, all that advertising led to at least one sale.

Yes, I've ridden in a couple that were converted to taxis in Chicago. They're actually quite nice for that role, even if they sort of look like an uglier and more awkward Honda Element on the outside.

EDIT: I appreciate how dressed up this one is.

I remember seeing these in NYC a while back. I think they were used to transport disabled people but dont remember exactly. Yeah, they are quite odd looking.

This was in the local grocery store parking lot today (no people were in the cab) when I stopped in for dinner supplies...
