  1. Does anyone remember what car sported this "hoodie"?
  2. Ten lookers and no guesses????
  3. Nash 1953-1955.
  4. Will - you be da man! Here's the rest of the Metropolitan!

    PS- I grew up in Dixon!
  5. It was the first vehicle I drove as a kid. I was about 10 and my best friend’s dad let us drive it. (Got to love a 3 speed on the column). We both thought the hood ornament was sexy, I guess times have changed since 1962.

    Do you still have family in Dixon?
  6. No family in Dixon, but that is where I bought my 1st car. Ron DuPratt Ford (our next door neighbor). A friend had a Metropolitan and we piled 8 or 9 of us in it to go get something to drink at the Winters Band Day! I still remember the tires almost riding on the wheels during that little trip - What a Life!!
  7. LOL,
    Wow that’s a lot of people for such a small car. I seem to remember We though it was small with two 10 year olds.
