Diesel Taxis in Tenerife

Just thought I would share this sweet photo



The Island of Tenerife was full of older M-B diesels. I saw 115's, 123's, 124's, 126's. .

It was great!! Both taxi's and just personal cars.

Enjoy

Is that terrible (flame suit on) double-star (one on the grille AND the ornament) a national feature or something. Odd to see one like that, let alone two at the same intersection.

Maybe it's just a personal dislike. The SEC-style (grill front) star has always bothered me for several reasons. First of all, it just looks gaudy and attention-grabbing to me, and secondly -- 75% of the fun of HAVING a hood star is seeing it proudly from behind the wheel. I wouldn't want one where it was hidden. Having both just seems... idk. Too flasy somehow. The single star is always understated but still gets noticed just because it's relatively unique, and if I had my choice between one or the other I'd much rather position it up on top.

Maybe it's the 123 cab company? That'd be my guess; just the company name.

Stealin' my line! I flew into Rabat last month. At the airport we were greeted by a fleet of perhaps 20 123 diesel taxis. They were all pretty darn old and beat. Refugees from taxi service in Europe, I would presume.
