Our Crew

Owner Woody McKee

Woodward McKee

Seventh Beatle, Fifteenth Stone. Inventor of the Kit-Kat. AVL Taxi’s Beloved Leader served the crown as a spy surveilling Kim Jong-il as third assistant title giver, lived with the Knoch-Knochie Indians in the Brazillian rainforest, and was arrested during the Watergate Burglary. He subsequently went looking for himself in the Gobi Desert. Once found, he was seriously dehydrated and swore to never lose sight of himself or his water supply again. After completing a Manifesto, a Magnum Opus and The Great American Essay he decided to start a taxi business because it was the only remaining challenge.
