(The remainder of the cars were sold with the familiar "M" emblem)

Some people estimate that only about 10% of the Metropolitans made now survive. So often, it will take several "parts cars" to produce one good car.

Look for the Met in several TV ads, movies, and shows.  For instance, Granny in the Sylvester and Tweety Mysteries cartoon drives one. Her Met was featured in a cartoon recently in which aliens crash landed on earth and one of the items listed in the repair manual needed to fix their ship was a radio knob from a Nash Metropolitan.
