How much were they? They aren't a bad price when you take into account Cab Direct and their £35K transit

I think for that price you didn't get a proper cab, more a people carrier. However that's still great value.

Problem 10 years later is all the emissions extras, and no doubt more health and safety extras, and the fact it is now a Ford not a Fiat/Peugeot/Citroen thing.

Although I'm told that Peugeot are building soon some lovely motors in India. :D

My god did you ever see the build quality of a Scot cab. A few of us went to the taxi show and the one on display was falling apart flip seat covers had fallen off and the rear door entry trim was all broken and that was with just with people looking round it at the show. Don't know how long the interier lasted once out on the road.
