The Nash Metropolitan is a car that was sold, initially only in the United States and Canada, from 1954–1962. While most U.S. automobile makers were following a bigger-is-better philosophy, Nash Motor Company executives were examining the market to offer American buyers an economical transportation alternative. The Metropolitan was designed in the U.S. and it was patterned from a concept car. The Metropolitan's staying power and its never-ending cuteness have earned it a place among the Greatest Cars of All Time
