This cute 9ct gold London taxi cab is still made in the UK, unlike the real thing.

LTI FX4 cab

A hackney or hackney carriage (also called a cab, black cab, hack or London taxi) is a carriage or automobile for hire.



An American tourist hailed a taxi in Mayfair, London and asked the cabbie to be taken to Buckingham Palace.

On the way, a car zoomed by and the tourist responded, ‘Oh! Cadillac – Made in the USA! Very fast!’

Not too long afterward, another car flew by the taxi. ‘Ah! Chevrolet – Made in the US of A! Very fast!’
Yet another car zipped by, and the tourist said, ‘Buick – Made in the USA! Lightning quick!’

The taxi driver, who was 100% London Cockney, was starting to get a little annoyed that the American made cars were passing him, when what should happen but yet another car passed the taxi as they were turning into Birdcage Walk. ‘Oh! Lexus – Made in the USA! Very rapid!’

The taxi driver stopped the car outside Buckingham Palace and pointing to the meter, and said, ‘That’ll be £100.’
‘£100? It was so short a ride! Why so much?’

The Taxi driver smiled as he replied, ‘Meter – Made in England. Very fast.’
