Hot and windy. However, the hill climb was a lot of fun. Friday night is the usual Culver's (restaurant) car show in Lincoln. Tonight we had both Speedster Reunion cars and a Nash Metropolitan club tour at the car show, so it was quite large.
Thanks for all the photos Rob. Looks like a lot of Speedsters that were not there 2 years ago. Great turnout.
Hard to believe there are that many Nash's in the Lincoln area.
There was a woman in the Nash club that had over 50 of those little Nashes.
The Metropolitan was built in England by Austin.
They used the same engine as the MGA but with only one carb. They had the same rear end as a Sprite. The brakes were Morris Minor/Sprite. The transmission was 3 speed column shift.
The Nash Metropolitan was the first captive import. What piece of sh%^&.
Sold by a company that put its own name on it but was made by another company.
There have been many since. Dodge Colt, Plymouth Arrow, Dodge D50, Chevy Luv, Ford Courier, all the GEO cars, to name a few.
Oh, thanks for posting Rob. Very interesting.
Why hate the nash? sounds like it is made from pieces of my favorite cars.
One of my professors drove a Metropolitan. He was a skinny guy, about 6'-4" tall. It was unbelievable seeing him get into or out of that car!
I remember Coach Searcy when I was in high school. He'd played basketball at Union University in Jackson, TN.
Coach Search was nearly 6'7" tall and he owned, no joke, an MG Midget! His getting into and out of that car, with the top up or down, was quite a sight!
