Nash Metropolitans

1958 metropolitan

I found this somewhat ambitious restoration project a while back. They are even smaller than they look; think smaller than a 1980s civic; honda beat sized. This one is a 1958 as far as I can tell (by this I mean wikipedia) because it has no trunk lid.

1960 Nash Metropolitan

This pretty blue and white thing is still a driver; I heard from people in the neigborhood that the original owner's son drives it occasionally since she passed away. I think it's a 1960, but it could be 1959. In doing my car research I found this exact car on the wikipedia article for the metropolitans.

(By the way if you like old cars, this pair showed up on my cars blog, rust chronicles, a while back. I try to post a different shot here when I cross-post a car just to keep it interesting.)
