A warm welcome to the METROPOLITAN OWNERS CLUB website. We are very pleased you have found your way to us. Since 2010 the Club has been run by a committee of 3 people - John Dowling, Bob Patrick and Steve James.

We welcome new and returning members, no matter where you live in the world. Here is a little about us, our aims for the club, the members and the great little car which is The Metropolitan.

The club exists to promote the maintenance, preservation, ownership and publicity of the Metropolitan car. It provides a forum for owners to discuss and exchange information on things ‘Metropolitan’. Various promotional items are available from the club, together with a small range of spare or reconditioned parts. A members register is in existence to provide the membership with the opportunity to receive local assistance or advice.

The car was designed by Nash in the US, primarily for use in that country, but it was built exclusively by Austin in the UK. The cars were sold by Nash into their markets from 1954 until 1961. Austin sold the cars in their UK and associated markets from 1957 until 1961.We want to foster interest and good fellowship in all things ‘Met’. That includes restoration, preservation and publicity. We have a colourful and interesting club magazine, designed to increase member’s active involvement in many club events and discussions. We embrace, not only the splendid history of AUSTIN who manufactured our cars, but also of NASH who had the foresight and ambition to design these colourful and unique little vehicles. The popularity of the Metropolitan, (impossible not to see one and smile), is a worthy legacy to these two proud organisations which are sadly no longer involved in on-going car production under their individual respected marques.

So, you want something which is unique, fascinating, capable and fun? We think the answer lies in getting yourself a Met and joining our club. Enjoy the site, talk to us and let us infect you with our own dedication and appreciation!

The MOC Committee.


General Data Protection Regulations    (GDPR)

When someone joins the club, we ask them for basic information that is entered on their application form. This information is necessary for us to communicate with them as members of the Club.

The data we ask for is – Name and address, Home telephone number and mobile telephone number, Email address, Details of any Metropolitan owned. There is also a note on the form advising that we produce a Membership List showing Name, Town, County or Country, Telephone number and Car registration no. This is made available on our website to all other members and is held on a password protected page. The application form contains a tick box for people to opt out of appearing on the Membership List if they do not wish to possibly be contacted by other members. As we only accept payments in the form of cheques, via my Paypal account or direct payments into the Club account, we do not hold any financial information for members.

From the application form, all the data is transcribed onto a master file of members that is held in a password protected file. Only committee members have access to the master file. Members information is only shared with members of the public who enquire for example, about seeing a Met locally, if their car still exists etc. after the club member has been contacted, and their permission granted.


From 25 May 2018, we start from a point whereby it is assumed that all existing members have opted in to this process. If you have any concerns whatsoever or wish to have your details changed, perhaps being removed from the Membership List that is available to other members, please let me know. 

Email – steve@metclubuk.com or telephone 01274 817756

You are entitled anytime to be removed from our lists, to see what information we store on you, to have your history deleted (more pertinent to your details if you leave the Club), or change your details.

No outside body will be given access to your information without you being asked for your permission to do so.
