Checker Motor Cars an innovative concept in automobile collection

(September 14, 2014) HAVERHILL, Mass. — The iconic Checker cab returns! Steve Contarino, an avid car enthusiast and collector, has announced formation of Checker Motor Cars, a business dedicated to support the iconic Checker automobile.

Contarino says the business is a new, innovative concept to make collecting and owning a piece of automobile history exciting and rewarding. The business is offering restored/reconditioned cars, original Checker parts, Checker merchandise, broker service and consulting/appraisal services.

Located 25 miles north of Boston in Haverhill, Mass., Checker Motor Cars' facility provides a service and restoration center with a parts warehouse on-site.
