Taxi Featured In Car Stereo Review Magazine March 1997

   Taxi Featured In Car Stereo Review Magazine March 1997 -Recipe for what owner/operator Jon Barnes has dubbed The Ultimate Taxi: Take one 1979 Checker Cab, add nine lasers, six black lights, 800 feet of fiber optic lighting, a mirrored disco ball, an Alpine sound system (components include two Model 3522 amplifiers, the 3331 11-band EQ, two pairs of 6086GX 8-inch subs, two 6397CX 6x9-inch triaxials, a remote display/control stowed on the visor for CD selection, a 6 disc CD changer, and a set of dash mounted tweeters), dry ice fog effects, a Yamaha keyboard, sound sampler, and digital drum set, and then mix vigorously. Congratulations: You’ve now got yourself one instant rolling disco. (And I haven’t even mentioned the saxophone, laptop computer complete with cell phone and modem connection, Sony MiniDisc recorder for capturing karaoke sound bites, Tascam Porta1 4-track mixing board, Kodak DC-50 digital camera, or Fargo digital printer…)
	What’s the idea behind this magical, musical, internet-connected taxi, which you can find more about at http://www.ultimatetaxi.com? “When you grow up on The Beatles and Star Trek, you want a rock-and-roll spaceship,” Barnes theorizes. “Now I’ve got mine, and I get to share it.” And share he does-at $75, that is, for a half-hour trip around his home base of Aspen, Colorado. The ride is part concert, part light show, part multimedia experience- and all entertainment. Or, as Barnes puts it, “It’s the closest thing you’ll ever find to the Magic Bus.” Everybody sing: I want it, I want it…
