    3 year UFO done

    I bought this 1956 Nash Metro 3 years ago and my husband has been working to restore it for the past 3 years. I helped a little and I did most of the interior.

    I just wanted to share my little car with you. In the one picture, I am driving and my SIL is riding.

    I drove it for the 1st time about a month ago.

    She is gorgeous! That interior is amazing, and I love the matching pillow. Super job. My brother had a Nash Rambler way back in the last century, a little deeper blue. Super job!

    It's a Met- short for Metropolitan. A Metro was made by GEO and doesn't look anything like this car. I have a '57, mardi gras red and frost white. Not a convertible, although our son has a '60 yellow and white one- he uses it as his daily driver in the summer.

    Be careful- they are like Lays potato chips- you can't have just one!

    Oh my gosh! My mother had one just like that when I was little! The only difference is the color. Her's was a pretty shade of turquoise, or aqua.

    She called it her "Puddle Jumper". They are so cute!

    What a fun looking little car. I remember a Nash Rambler in the family way back.
    Love the matching pillow with the car on it.
