    I don't know why, but I was thinking about the Metropolitan tonight. I was the first American sub-compact. I remember when these things were driving around the streets. Eventually the sales died out. And then American Motors went out of business.

    Take a look. If AMC were still around, is it conceivable that this model could be revived, with different mechanicals, of course. But a redesign based on the original. Perhaps not. Even though its Pininfarina styling is up to making it iconic, it never became an icon. Not like Mini or the Beetle.

    That is a good question. I wonder if it would have the fan base for them to put it back into production? If they did, I wonder what the updated version would look like? The Nash was an interesting little car. I can't remember if I every saw one in person but I have watched a lot of shows on it.
