Boyfriend Hails One-Of-A-Kind Taxi For The Ultimate Sentimental Proposal

A marriage proposal in the back seat of a taxi doesn't exactly sound romantic -- at least not at first.

But when New York City man John Tracy popped the question to his girlfriend, Lesley Frankel, in the back of New York City cab 8D99, the unlikely location turned out to be sweetest part of the whole proposal.

According to the New York Post, Tracy went out of his way to track down that particular medallion because Frankel's late grandfather had driven taxi 8D99 for 40 years. After he died, she was always on the lookout for the van that once belonged to him.

Knowing this, Tracy tried to figure out a way to find that cab -- he even resorted to filing a fake lost item report to no avail. He eventually took to Twitter, where the Taxi & Limousine Commission was able to connect him with the current medallion owner, Sergio Cabrera.

To find out how the super sweet proposal played out, check out the NBC 4 New York video above.
