Augusto Macedo,94, Lisbon, Portugal's, oldest taxi driver who ferried passengers around the capital in a 1928 Oldsmobile, died Friday -- the day a movie featuring him and his cab premiered. "Taxi Lisboa" is based on his recollections of his 68 years as a cabdriver and features scenes of old Lisbon, a weird variety of passengers traveling in the Oldsmobile and Mr. Macedo telling tales seated on one of the black-and-green cab's running boards. He was hospitalized a month ago after suffering a heart attack.
