'56 Nash Metropolitan


I remember riding with my grandmom in her Metropolitan. Looking out over the hood and the bug-eyed lights of that little Nash was when I first fell in love with small cars. Now I own a car of about that size and gas milage myself. Life comes full circle once again.

See: http://jsbrookspresents.blogspot.com/2013/04/toyota-yaris-enduring-value.html for my modern version of the Metropolitan.

I so would have loved to own one of these cars! Recently saw a TV show where this lady and her husband now own 7 -- count them -- 7 Nash Metropolitans because she loved them so much!

I'm glad to know one couple has saved 7 of these wonderful cars ... but I can't help but be a little jealous! I'd love to have one myself. I content myself with owning a Toyota Yaris, which feels like the modern day equivalent to me.
