PNMOC ... The Pacific Northwest Metropolitan Owners Club


Our club was established to bring together individuals and families who have a passion for the classic Metropolitan automobile. We are a chapter of the national Metropolitan club: Metropolitan Owners Club of North America (MOCNA). MOCNA is an international club of Metropolitan owners, supporters, and collector car enthusiasts.

The Metropolitan was designed and created more than 50 years ago, bringing a new, small American car into the USA marketplace. Unlike other American cars of the time, it brought a different philosophy into place—small, compact, fuel efficient. Not overwhelmingly accepted during its time in the ‘50’s and ‘60’s, it has become a favorite vehicle for present day fans, including collectors and restorers. The moniker it carries with it is “Cute”. Typically, it is enjoyed being used as it was designed and restored to original specifications. Certainly, some owners have modified their cars to improve power, safety, and added a multitude of colors to the exterior. Even with these changes the distinctive look of the Met is undeniable.

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!

Thank you to everyone who shared their pictures, including my sister Bev.

The President's Message


Ever notice how the owners of Mets are a happy lot?  At any car display one attends, the Met owners are always cheerful, engaging, and interested in telling others about the history and specifics of the Metropolitan car.  Observing from a distance, the spectators who approach a Met also brighten with a smile when they get near. 

Memories of past times, the “cute” little car itself, or just the visibility of it sitting next to a “muscle car” induces a smile on their faces and attitude.  There are not too many classic cars that inspire this happy spirit.  This attitude is gender neutral, as both male and female observers continue to use the comment “CUTE!”
