Sandie wrote Does anyone know if the Metrocab was sold in Australia? I'm watching the lame eighties remake of Mission Impossible which was made there and the same Metrocab keeps appearing in the street scenes.

Yes a Metrocab version were built in Sydney, fitted with either local GMH Holden or Ford Falcon 6cyl motor & transmission. I think the wonderful feature was fiberglass, bolt on mudguards to eliminate long downtitme should one have an accident. I think they were modified to the style of the Nissan Prairie which only came with a 4cyl 2Litre motor.
Either way they were practical and more important offerered driver safety & protection. Sadly their marketing didn't have the support of the diehard taxi industry.
Victoria is now looking for a purpose built taxi to include those features, rather than the presently used Falcon or Holden Sedan, Station Wagon or the larger "people movers"
