How a Taxicab grew into a Limousine

Abbott Family
Our limousine service started as a taxi service in 1965 after my father lost his right leg in a construction accident.

Donald Abbott decided to start driving to the Park where there was a Greyhound Bus Stop in Lee Massachusetts a part of the recovery process, it helped take his mind off the major derailment in his life. While parked there he was often asked “is this a taxi?”  A $10 taxi license an extension of the accelerator pedal, and the Bubble light mounted, he began taking hails in that 1960 station wagon quickly becoming the local cabby.
