It is salmon, do not call it pink.

I stopped at a gas station in Oyen, Alberta today for coffee and gas. I noticed this car in the parking lot as it was not there a few minutes earlier. Two older men just came inside and I asked them if this was their car. They said it was and the first thing they did was set me straight on the colour. It is a Nash Metropolitan. I forgot to ask the year. They offered to take me for a rid in it. I was on my way home and declined but I am kicking myself for not taking them up on it.

They have been restoring it. Upon closer inspection there are a few minor wrinkles in the body and it does need to be repainted. I think they should change the colour.


  1. Oooh! Nice!

    There used to be one around my home berg. It was always a kick to see it.
    Check out the Nash Metropolitan Wikipedia page. It's pretty cool.

    1. In my much younger days my father had a Mercury Meteor that was this colour.

  3. I have never seen a salmon that color.

  4. Nash Metropolitans are the epitope of "cute."

    There are a couple of them I see each summer here in is yellow and white, the other is blue and white. Chances are, if you wave to someone in a Metropolitan, they'll wave back.

  5. Sweet ride! Although I must admit, with my aversion to pink (salmon or otherwise) I wouldn't be long painting it if it were mine.

  6. IMHO, it's a refreshing bright spot in a sad depressing sea of black/gray/white or dark red vehicles.
