Are You Man Enough to Drive a Pink Nash Metropolitan?

Pink Nash metropolitan for sale

If you’re reading this site, you’ve probably come around to the idea of a Miata as an acceptable man’s car. In fact, on the whole, we’re cool with little cars. But dude…that’s a lot of pink.

Pink Nash Metropolitan for sale

Were we simply talking about an excellent-condition pink Nash Metropolitan, you’d have a great case for a cute girl car. Maybe an old lady. It’s the upgrades the complicate things: the Weber carb, 4-wheel discs from a Midget and a 3.90:1 rearend suggest this little strawberry shortcake might embarrass the occasional V6 Mustang (up to about 18 mph). If not, there’s always forced induction or any number of motorcycle powerplants to take advantage of…

It’s up to $7200 with an unmet reserve on eBay Motors

  • sure i am. i just have no like for the metro…


      Is this anyhow related with NSU?

      • nash metropolitan? no more then a saab is related to a spyker.. oh wait.
        a gm is to a daewoo…

        but no, no it is not.

        • Slow Joe Crow

          The Metropolitan was built by Austin and sold as an Austin in the UK and Europe.

    • jjd241

      Damned STRAIGHT! I’d put on a skirt for that cutie any day!

  • Sure. It's innate coolness transcends its homo-esque color.

    I'd make it a real sleeper though, if for no other reason than to emasculate the guys who are not man to drive this certain attention magnet.

  • needs more V8.

  • Finally! A way to put my "evil-clown" getup to good use.

  • Seth L

    In a heartbeat.

    I'd like to see a Nash Metropolitan vs. Nissan Figaro comparison.

    • The Figaro is supported by musicians such as John Paul Jones (or, well, probably at least one member of Them Crooked Vultures) and Eric Clapton. The Metropolitan has been owned by musicians such as Weird Al and Phil Collins. Completely irrelevant argument? Probably, but I'm okay with that.

  • It's a motorcycle engine away from being invited into my garage.

    And it'd actually fit into my second garage bay, which has a support beam smack in the middle.

    Good times.


      It will fit in the Volvo's trunk.

    • I was thinking Hyabusa myself.

      I saw a convertible Met in Tybee Island GA last weekend.

      Way Sweet

  • I wonder if that is a factory color.

    • Might be.

      My understanding of the 50s was that pink, aquamarine and black were the only colors available.

    • I've seen a lot of photos of pink Metropolitans – both the one-colour '54-55 and the two-tone, slightly-less-bathtublike '56-62. I assume it was a factory option.


    Probably works as good as P*ssy Magnet Yellow, at least you'll be seen.

    • I think this may reverse the polarity of said magnet.

  • Ha! When we married, my wife one of those. It was red and white however. This one needs the Weber stripped off and the original Zenith put back. Those MG 3-main engines are pretty bullet-proof as long as you don't rev the shit out of them.

  • Hell ya. I'd love to have that little pink thing. My Dad sports a '61 Convertible. It's sleeping now, awaiting a rebuild, some unibody issues finally put it asleep.


  • W. Kiernan

    Not only would I drive it with pride, but I'd install little multi-tune horns that got "tootle-tootle-tootle" in cheery tones, and a machine that blows little soap bubbles that float in the air from under the rear bumper as it bops and boops down the road. And I'd wear a hat.

  • It needs a chocolate brown interior. Then it would be a Neopolitan Metropolitan.

    • Despite having Admin privileges, the system limits me to one thumbs-up per comment. That's too bad.

      • Don't worry, I "thumbs-up'ed" it for ya…… now wait, who's gonna do it for me? I smell a Ponzi scheme!

    • Brilliant.

    • You win the comments and are hereby awarded, all the internets I have. Good Job!

      • That's freaking awesome, thank you for your internets. I promise I will do good with them.

        • I gave you one, too. Ah, you clever!

          • Thanks to everyone for all the internets! I don't remember love like that over at [REDACTED]. You people rock the Casbah!

    • That is the mostest awesomest comment EVER!

  • People say cars don't attract girls. I'm no girl, but I think this one would.

    • I think you would get guys and girls, so you could take your pick.

  • I absolutely would drive this, without one bit of concern for feeling secure in my masculinity.

    I must admit, however, that I can't help but think how awesome of a car this would be for Charles. And I don't even mean that in a stereotypical way. It's awesome, unique, novel, everyone loves it except Jeremy, slightly whimsical, even funny, but still demands a hell of a lot of respect. Just like Charles! Oh, and it's pink.

    • It'd be like a fruitier re-enactment of the Nelson Muntz Vs Tall Guy in a Little Car scene from The Simpsons.

      • "You just start marching, Mister! Nice boxers, by the way, I have the same pair."

    • I must say, I was thinking the same thing. Although, Charles is quite tall and may find the Metro a bit confining.

  • Drive it? Hell, I'd drive it in my kilt. With a claymore sticking out the window.

    • A land mine?

      • I was thinking more along the lines of the bigass sword (think Braveheart.) Oh the other hand, dangling a land mine out your window does say a certain something about your level of commitment.

  • I'd be entirely okay with driving a pink Metropolitan, although I'd be tempted to raid a Kei-car for parts to make it suck less.

    • Actually you can raid the MG Racing department. From what I understand Spridget parts are bolt on, same drivetrain.

      • That valve cover does look familiar.

  • I SOOOOOOO wish I sold Mary Kay Cosmetics because this car right here would make me a small fortune. Selling cosmetics.

  • Forget that tasteless "Skittles" donk, this car would look killer rolling on 15"s with a Nesquick Strawberry theme! http://www.nesquik.com/adults/products/nesquikrea

  • You better believe I'd rock that, I'd even get a little yappy dog to go in the passenger seat.

    Cute puppy + Cute car = chick magnet / instant conversation starter.

  • vwminispeedster

    As a 6'4" tall dude I would prodly rock this thing. Too bad my aunt has the coolest license plate for one of these: NASHCAN. Maybe I'd get it backwards NACHSAN.

  • Yes I would own that, but with a few modifications. I saw a tubbed and caged one at the local Hardee's but as my camara phone's plastic outer lens met with the hot cherry of a cigarette recently I was unable to get a non-blurry photo. It's definitely a conversation starter and head turner!

  • If PeeWee Herman drove a car, this would be it. It should have been parked in front of the Playhouse.

    The bad part about making it a super sleeper is that you would only get to con people once. Nobody's going to say, "Hey, is that the same mint condition pink Metropolitan that dusted me off last weekend? Nah, wait. I think the tag is different."

    • Only if it was caught jacking off in a theater.

  • I would drive it. I'm secure enough in my masculinity to rock a midget car in '50s pink. Why not? Nobody else at the local cruise night is going to have one. Sure, it might get lost amongst the Shoebox Chevys and '70s muscle cars, but that's what the pink is for!

  • Jeremy Nimmo

    Ooooh yeah.. All it needs is some fabbed up pink Caddy fins.

  • Since General Motors and Chrysler entered bankruptcy last spring, GM has stolen the lion’s share of the headlines. The General has made front page news with new products, a government loan payback and first quarter profits, while Team Pentastar has quietly gone about the business of returning to respectability. Chrysler took another step towards its goal this week as the company paid back another $1.9 billion in government loans to the federal government. In total, Chrysler has paid back $3.9 billion of the $14.3 billion in loans the company received.

  • Jan Blythe

    I want this car!! Is it still for sale.
