Well the second classic car in our stable has been finished; 1959 Nash Metropolitan. Think it turned out pretty well. Not as complete a restoration as the Comet, but just as rewarding, as it was given to us by a very good long time friend. Not running when we received it (had been sitting for several years), it was taken to the Metropolitan Pitstop, in North Hollywood CA. They specialize in ALL things Metro. After all the mechanicals were sorted out, it was brought home, and I learned to drive it (it taught me). Satisfied with my driving ability, we went ahead with the cosmetics. The car was painted by a friend of a friend, who was a retired body shop owner, and his son. Colors are Mustang Bullitt green/Lexus off white. The interior was done by the same gentleman that did the Comet. Drivetrain is still stock; 1500cc 4 banger (53 neck snapping horsepower), 3 speed manual, drum brakes. All of the rubber pieces were replaced, and all the of the chrome/stainless was redone.
