The 1958 Nash Metropolitan

Today’s Zippy, with not much linguistic in it, but it recalls an earlier Zippy posting:


Earlier on this blog: a posting of 10/3/14 on Zippy’s Unicar, a fanciful hybrid creation with a Nash Metropolitan chassis on a unicycle body — and a portmanteau name.

An actual 1958 Nash Metropolitan, now lovingly restored, on the Auto Trader Classics site:


The Wikipedia Nash Metropolitan page has more detailed information about the cars than you could possibly have use for. If I read the descriptions right, Zippy’s car in #1 is in P903 “Coral Red” or P913 “Mardi-Gras Red”, and the car in #2 is in P905 “Caribbean Blue”.

Honk — hit the car horn — if you go to sleep.
