Macy's Parade 2017

November 24th, 2017 by Pamela "Pam" Bowe in category: Event Galleries

Metros Participate in Holiday Parade!

The 27th annual My Macy’s holiday Parade was held on November 24th this year in Seattle, and this was our 23rd year as participants!   PNMOC’s  ten car team was a crowd favorite, judging by the waves, smiles, cheers and comments of “Cute!" and "Love that car!"” we received from the viewers along the route.   We lucked out on the weather; rainless and warm enough to bring out thousands of happy people who lined the streets to watch the parade.  Our formation of festively decorated Metros motored along the one mile parade route that meandered through the downtown retail core.  After shedding our holiday decorations at route’s end we caravanned and rendezvoused at a local Denny’s restaurant where we all enjoyed a well deserved and tasty brunch.   Well done, entrants – can’t  wait for next year!

Dick's Drive-In Seattle Celebration

April 23rd, 2017 by Pamela "Pam" Bowe in category: Event Galleries

Congratulations! Your vehicle has been selected to be featured in the Lake City Car Show this Sunday, April 23rd, 2017.  As part of our 1959 & older class, your vehicle will be featured in front of the Drive-In from 4:30pm-5:30pm.

For those of you near Seattle, you may recognize the name Dick's Drive-In. With multiple locations this Seattle icon has been serving Hamburgers, Fries and Milkshakes since 1954. Learning that the Lake City location was having a celebration and Car Show I applied to be one of 10 cars to represent 1954-1959.

Early Bird Swap Meet 2017

February 18th, 2017 by Pamela "Pam" Bowe in category: Event Galleries

Thank you to all of the members who made our double booth in the Sleep Train Expo Hall great! Dale Carrington and I met Rocky Feller at my place at 4:00 and went into the Fairgrounds with no waiting. We set up and scooted out with just a one hour turn-around! It was great!

Mike Rossi, Keith Mayfarth, Don and Cheryl
Coddington, Mike Jernigan, Scott and Lilia Maziar, Mark Hominda, Ed and Kathy O'Malley, Jeff and Jan Rich, Ed and Harriet Miller, Paul Gobat and Reuben Hominda did a great job representing our club. My valve cover made into a Hot Wheels racetrack confused more than a few people, so Dale brought a real valve cover racer for people to see. We made new friends, have three people thinking about coming to the next meeting, and got to meet club member Chuck Wolf.

All British Field Meet, 2016

July 23rd, 2016 by Kathy Bergh in category: Event Galleries

The 28th Annual All British Field Meet was held July 23, 2016, at St. Edwards Park in Kenmore. It was an impressive venue for a car show! The historic nature of St. Edwards added to the pomp and circumstance of this gathering, in a friendly car show way.
As posted on the Facebook ABFM our Metropolitans are the newest entry class to be included. “The 28th Annual WWABFM is pleased to include the Austin Metro as a new marque in our event....The Nash Metropolitan is an
automobile that was sold from 1953 to 1961.It conforms to two classes of vehicle: economy car and subcompact car. In today’s terminology the Metropolitan is a “subcompact”, but this category had not yet come into use when the car was made. At that time, it was variously categorized, for example as a "small automobile" as well as an "economy car".”
For our first OFFICIAL year showing we had fun. Jan and Jeff Rich, Pam Bowe, Barb and Chuck Blodgett, Mike Rossi and Barbie Rostad brought their Mets to the event. Several other PNMOC members stopped by sans Met and joined in the fun. Our Met class was presented with awards made from wrenches. Very creative. By Pam Bowe

Can-Am 2016

Memories of Can-Am 2016 by Gary Roberts


I drove to the border with Wayne and Ingrid and Josh Dersch. After Friday afternoon’s drive over hill and dale to the Clayburn Village Store, it was time to eat. Then back to the guest hotel. How do you get 13 Mets in 7 parking spots? You stack them! I made a sign for the trip up. Longest trip in my Met, 200 miles one way, and it ran great for the 500 mile weekend. I have much more confidence in it now. Saturday afternoon we drove through the Sumas Prairie farmlands. We stopped at Granny and Grumpa’s Antiques. This place apparently was on the TV show Canadian Pickers. We left the antiques place and drove more Sumas Prairie and ended up at Birchwood Dairies for ice cream. More prairie cruising, and we arrived at the Phoenix Ballroom for the Saturday night banquet. Very good food! I think my Met was sweet on Miss Daisy there. She sure was a
pretty little thing! The best part of the trip for me was meeting the B.C. Met members. I have always found Canadians to be very friendly and welcoming people, and that is what I found at this meet. But I also met and got better acquainted with some PNMOC members. At the club meetings people tend to sit at the same table with the same folks, so you don't get the opportunity to bounce tables to sit with and meet different members. But at a weekend gathering like this you do have the opportunity to mingle in a more relaxed atmosphere. It was a fun weekend and I am very glad that I went.

Brookdale Allenmore Car Show

June 18th, 2016 by Kathy Bergh in category: Event Galleries

Brookdale Allenmore Senior Living Solutions Car Show saw sun, clouds, hail, wind, and then sun again. None of the weather changes affected the big smile on Leonard Robison’s face. Eight Mets were joined by three other classic cars that saw the “Car Show Today” signs and joined our merry (if a bit damp) group. The Tacoma Banjo Band wisely moved inside to play for an hour. Our hosts provided all who came with a hot dog picnic lunch. They are talking about a bigger and better event for next year when they called to thank us for getting their (going to be) annual car show off to a great start. Kathy Bergh, chair

2013 Weekend on Whidbey

September 14th, 2013 by Dale Carrington in category: Event Galleries
This is MY car! MINE, MINE, MINE!

Weekend on Whidbey – WHAT A WEEKEND! I added 3 days to it and it still went by in a flash! For a relaxing weekend there sure is a LOT going on. A few of us tried to get there a little early to help set everything up. Friday folks were arriving throughout the day and settling in. Friday evening started at the bonfire roasting hot dogs and marsmallows, eating bean dishes, chips and some of the best pie on this earth! Conversation was hot and heavy all evening.

Saturday morning broke with hot coffee, waffles, eggs any way you wanted them, hash browns and ham – and a general loosening of belts. Valve cover beauty contest and races followed with lots of cheering, picture snapping and tight competition.

Kenosha Internationals Trip

Kenosha, Wisconsin Internationals Trip

Having made the decision to satisfy a longtime goal and drive my Met across the country, the International in Kenosha was just the excuse! I spent some time preparing the Met and building a small trailer to carry extra parts, water, oil, odds n ends.

Taking the Met for a "little" ride

Taking the Met for a “little” ride

Maybe a few of you have noticed how much I like to drive my Mets. I’ve never been afraid or even hesitated to go most any distance or in any direction in my Met as long as there’s a navigable road. Some of you may have read about my trip from Puyallup, Washington to Kenosha, Wisconsin and back for the MOCNA International. And though there may have been a little problem or two along the way, (like a golf ball sized hole in the radiator, and a broken control arm bolt - twice) there was nothing that couldn’t be repaired and on my way.

The annual Christmas Party was chaired by Ingred and Wayne and was another huge sucess. There were three couples sorely missed at this party, Bob and Bea Collier, Leonard and Shirley Robison, Vane Walter and Marjorie Feller. We wish them all a Merry Christmas and hope to see them soon in 2012. Entertainment was Phil Bergh and his daughter singing us a few Christmas carols and a few members enjoyed some additional entertainment in the bar.

We bought our restoration rescue car July 18, 2004. Advertised as "80% complete", that just meant that someone else did the easy paart and we were stuck trying to figure out what went where, fix it, and stick it back on. We are making progress thanks to Dale Carrington and many other PNMOC members.

New arrival in the family

Glenn and Cam Giese

November 1st, 2012 by Glenn Giese in category: Met Galleries

A new arrival in our household.  This 1957 Met convertible (now re-named "Miss Cam") arrived from Lake Ozark, Missouri.  It was formerly owned by a gentleman named Joe Page who had this vehicle since 1992.  He restored it in the late 1990's and used it as a point of purchase prop in one of his seven "Summer USA" stores.  He has decided to downsize his worklife, so he sold 5 of his stores and along with it offered this little Met for sale.  I purchased it from him, and originally intended on surprising my wife (Cam) with it on Christmas morning.  I didn't quite have all my bases covered on hiding everything.  While I was at work, one of the three insurance companies that I contacted for quotes called the house, spilled the beans, and I had some explaining to do when I got home that evening.  Cam is "Very Happy" with her early present, and we both look forward to having fun with this amazing little car next year when we have good weather again.

The B.C. Mets hosted a Met Cruise from Nanaimo to Campbell River and back. This event was all about driving and showing off our Mets and a little bit about GREAT BBQs at the McClymont's and Klint's! Don Klint built a valve cover race track and the competition was FIERCE!! (I didn't have a chance ;^{(}  All along our route we met with folks who hadn't seen a Met in years or just thought they were cute, and of course - there were LOTS of smiles all along the way.

Fix A Met May 5th '12

The May 5th Fix A Met

What a beautiful day to get the Mets out and take care of some needed maintenance! 10 Mets came out for a little help and parts of a couple more were brought in for work.  18 folks were there to inspect, repair, or assist in any way possible. Mike Jernigan performed an inspection on each Met as it arrived to make sure the basics worked – lights, brakes, electric, and went over things with the owner that they were having troubles with or needed improvements on. This inspection drove the focus of our Fix A Met so we can help ensure we’re driving safer and more trouble free.

Enumclaw Christmas Parade 2011

A background to match any Met.

If you are driving to Point Defiance, it is well worth the time to take the Vassault Street Entrance and look at Duc Pham's home at 3725 N. Vassault St. It is festooned with dahlias, geraniums, roses, petunias, impatiens, marigolds, irises, begonias, clematis, hydrangeas, lilies, and ..... . Duc is a Vietnamese refugee who uses flowers to both celebrate his success in his new country and ease the pain of leaving his home, business, friends and some family behind. Phil and I visited with Duc briefly and toured both the front and back yards. If we need a stop for a tour or poker run during the blooming season, I heartily recommend this beautiful celebration of life. It is a great photo opportunity!
