Until what year did the Chevrolet Caprice of the 80's and 90's circulate in New York?
Published 05/11/2019 @ 17:09:54, By UndergroundStyles
Hello, Looking for videos of New York from years ago, I found a video that is from the year 2002 date april 17, and in a part of the video you see a Chevrolet Caprice of the 80s and behind there is a caprice of the 90s circulating I really do not realize the year models but I know that they are the typical caprices of that time and see that these cars were still circulating in 2002 I find something curious, someone who is from New York or knows the city well, could tell me until what year these cars circulated?

I put a picture of the taxi because I do not know if it is allowed to upload links from other pages to this forum

thanks and good day.

Are you sure this footage is from 2002? I think it's impossible. In 1996, NYC introduced a 5 year age limit on taxis:

https://www.nytimes.com/1996/01/26/nyregion/taxi-board-votes-age-limit-for-cabs-and-a-rise-in-fares.html

This was phased in on November 1, 1996. So in 2002, no taxi could be older than 1997.

Also if you see the video you can see the familiar ford crown victoria that is still used today i think they circulate in nyc since 1998 right?, and also you can see a 96 or 97 ford crown victoria so i think this was in 2002 since the last mentioned model was still around in early 2000s but i wait someone who knows about nyc taxis clarify this :grin:

I've seen other footages videos of this guy and the other videos has the right date and place, maybe he made a mistake?
or maybe was it one of the few that remained and it was allowed to use?
since it think there was a checker taxi that stopped being used in 1999 right?

I think that one little section of the clip was stock footage. The newest model I saw with the Caprice was the 1995 Ford Explorer and a 1993-94 Ford Crown Victoria. Also a 90s Toyota Camry was there so that part was probably filmed sometime between 1995-01

I see, then answering my question, there is probably no more 80's caprices taxis in New York at that point :(, but a friend who traveled to New York in March 2002 says that on the street there were Crown Victoria 1997 and 1996 models and 2000's models, Honda Odyssey 1995 and he found a 90s chevy caprice, he doesn't remember what year the model was but he says he was sure it was a 90s caprice
so maybe that model was still around
but in minory

PD: I have realized that for some reason my post doubled, sorry if that bothers people in any way, my intention was to ask only one time

If the cab was owned by the driver, and not leased from a cab company, there was an exception that went up to 8 years.

What shows up on Google Search: "While it approved a maximum five-year age limit for taxis, the commissioners said that they eventually intended to allow some cabbies who own their own cars to keep them as long as eight years. The retirement ages for taxis will be phased in beginning Nov. 1."

There was also extensions allowed for CNG powered cars, minivans, wheelchair accessible, hybrid or other clean-air cabs.

So, if that car belongs to the taxist, he could continue using it after 8 years, if the 5-year rule came in november 1996, from 1996 to 5 years would be november 2001 and extend 3 more years to the taxi car owners until 2004, is that so? or is it what I understood, I am somewhat confused

Hello back, surfing the internet looking for photos of these cars in the 2000's
(Yes, I am a bit obsessed with the caprice taxis) and I found this photo, you see a caprice of the 90s, dated February 2003, back you see an advertising of the movie Biker Boyz so this photo is authentic, that movie came out In 2003, what do you think?

As @night cub pointed out, it was probably a privately owned cab and not part of a company by that point. That Caprice is a 1995-96 model so seeing it still used in 2003 wouldn't be that uncommon.
