By current standards, the Nash Metropolitan is a subcompact car.
Shopping on St. Catherine Street (downtown Montreal) was extra fun this past weekend. It was our annual "largest sidewalk sale in Canada" event. In addition to all the different stalls selling everything from batteries to expensive fashions, there were other activities such as this exhibition of vintage automobiles. The one that really caught my eye was this Nash Metropolitan, a 1958 model. It was sold in the United States and Canada from 1954–1962 and was designed as an economical transportation alternative... marketed as a "commuter/shopping car". What a beauty!
Do you fancy yourself driving this?
