Owner’s Q&A

Classics Monthly - - Reader Resto Metro City -

What started your in­ter­est With the Metro?

My Mum had a D-reg City X when I was grow­ing up then had a later 1993 Metro, which was my first car. I’ve al­ways loved them – and BL prod­ucts in gen­eral.

did you know how rare your car was when you bought it?

yes, I did, as the gen­tle­man I bought her from had one the same spec­i­fi­ca­tion but dou­ble the mileage.

What’s the stan­dard re­ac­tion from mem­bers of the pub­lic?

They love her. The al­ways rem­i­nisce about fam­ily mem­bers hav­ing one, that it was their first car or their friend’s first car or learnt to drive in a Metro. It’s the fact that she is so ba­sic when com­pared to a mod­ern su­per-mini that stag­gers them.

What Was one of the Most Mem­o­rable parts of its restora­tion?

See­ing her stripped down get­ting the TLC she needed to get her back on the road, but then tak­ing her out and show­ing her off.
