We've decided to do something a little different for this month's blog: Cool Car of the Month! When this car came in last month to repair a leak in the transmission, one word kept coming to mind: Tiny. That's probably the same thing people thought when the Metropolitan first came out in the 1950's. In an era of stretch coupes, the Metropolitan is said to have started the smaller car trend. It may have also started the phrase, "tiny but mighty," because Road and Track tested the 1954 model's acceleration from 0-60 at 22.4 seconds. That's almost twice as most Volkswagens at the time. The car's performance was so impressive back then, that is was the car of choice by police departments. It was named "One of the greatest cars of all time" by former Motor Trend Magazine editor Jack Nerad. Pretty Cool, huh?
