About “51”

I have owned this car 9 years we drive it as much as we can we won a drive it award last year from NRCA we are very proud to accept this award.

About “Leadfoot”

1958 Sunburst Yellow/White Metropolitan. All stock 1500 cc, Austin engine, 3 on the tree transmission - daily driver (when Michigan weather permits!) We've driven this to many states and have a blast with it.

This picture was taken at the Tin Can Tourists Annual Gathering in May 2007. The Met pulls a 2007 Dew Drop Cargo Trailer.

Specs for “Leadfoot”

A scorching 1500 cc engine powers this baby! 3 on the tree transmission. Due to small size, it's surprisingly fun to drive - and very easy to maintain. Austin engine makes it easy to find parts. Designed by Nash, built in Longbridge England for the US market.

This is a "mid" version. Features the 2 tone paint scheme but does not have vent windows or an exterior trunk lid.
