I've stalled at 76 - there's a couple that I have the makes on, but not the model. I'll have to dig deep and try to remember model names.

#35...the test wanted it to be called an AMC Metropolitan but, when those cars were built they were commonly referred to as Nash Metropolitans.

#9?

98/100 giving me a break for first calling a Chevy 210 a bel air, and the nash/amc thing referenced above.

I was a total genius on this type of thing when I was a little sprout in the late '60's.

what model is the pontiac?

and the next to the right on the bottom must be the nash.

actually i think the metropolitain carried at least two different brand names... maybe hudson too? i could be wrong.

i just looked in my book. first sold as nash metropolitain, then briefly as a hudson met. and finally as just a metropolitian. (built by amc). they were buit entirely in england. the engine was a austin, closely related to the morris minor and ah sprite engines.

the only person i ever knew who owned one was our minister when i was very small. i dont remember the color.

Catalina. But in Canada it might have been a Parisienne.
