Metro Owners Club goes live

Metros of all shapes and sizes are welcome in the Metro Owners Club.

Metros of all shapes and sizes are welcome in the Metro Owners Club.

The Metro Owners Club has been up and running for nearly a year – mainly as an online community. However, as of the 1st February 2009, it’s going to expand to become an official Owners’ Club organisation and, to celebrate the event, there will be a Launch Party at Longbridge Vicarage from 1.00pm on the 1st February.

You’ll be able to meet other members and their cars, as well as join the Club. There will also be a small Autojumble, refreshments and screenings of Metro-related films.

The Club caters for all Metros from 1980-1998, including Austin, MG, VP, Rover, 100, vans – all the varieties you could possibly think of. The Club is very diverse in people and cars and members have cars ranging from basic City models to the roadburning MG 6R4.

The aim of the Club is to help preserve this oft-overlooked part of British motoring history. The Club has already held a number of events, including the annual Metro birthday bash, which is held at Q-Gate Longbridge (see picture).

For more information, visit metroownersclub.org or contact the Club’s Media Secretary, Grant Parker, on 07929 969972.

    I have a new (unused) carburettor from a Metro 1 litre A plus engine, any reasonable price considered, would like it to go to an enthusiast.

    Also have the AR Metro workshop manual as issued to dealers, issue date of about 1987, very very superior to the Hyanes manual, again any reasonable offer accepted

Have your say...
