Try 30. The 1992 redesign used the same chassis introduced in 1978 as a 79 model. The updates since 1992 have improved the steering and handling a bit, but the bulk of the car has been the same since then. It's now like the Checker used to be, a new old car that is leagues behind what is sold now. But reliability is what its got, beside blue haired (or uniformed) drivers.

Good point. The Ranger is in the same boat, it dates back to 1984.

But as a taxi it is pretty good. I had a ride lately in SF and it felt very comfortable.

I was thinking about the 4.6 V8 going into it, but that may have been even later.
