3/4 shot of the 1974 Maverick called the ‘Tijuana Taxi’


Here is a nice 3/4 angle shot of the ‘Taxi’ showing some good details of the vehicle.

One of the discussions that I have read about over the past is the actual name of the car.

There were three iterations of the name:

  1. “Tijuana Taxi”
  2. “Juana Taxi”
  3. “Taxi”

I don’t know the reasoning for the name changes. Some of have stated it was pressure from NHRA to change it from ‘Tijuana’ to ‘Juana’ or just plain ‘Taxi’.

I doubt it. The reasons for the changes are lost in time.
