Hey froggie, following your link I get a message saying "ADULT CONTENT - you must be signed in to see this content". You're not trying to gross us out, are you? :)

I didn't sign in. The Adult Content screen came up. So I looked at the Flickr layout, saw "next photo" arrows, and clicked forward, and voila! The Adult content screen went away, and there were the crocuses.
So There.

I followed the Back to photostream link & saw the young crocuses a lot of great pics, including some pics of backyard bonfires, & other flowers.

Thanks for the link

It's a very nice (but hardly adults-only) greeting card. Clicking is completely safe...and it's not the crocuses.
Happy Christmas, Dean.
Is that a Rambler Metropolitan in the last picture?

Thanks, frogprince.

Even though it's officially Advent, we sang "Lo, How a Rose e'er Blooming" today. The excuse was that the song mentions Isaiah, and Isaiah was in the readings.

I hope the roses are blooming (at least figuratively) for you and yours.

Yep, Joe; I acquired the ('61) Metropolitan three weeks or so ago; have been running around town with it a little, expecting winter to close in any time now; no way am I taking it out in the sludge and salt.

The link business is goofy; if I bring up my own Flickr photo stream, the card is just there as the newest item, next to things that people are viewing with no problem; the card is posted as open to the public.

The sicko part is anyone getting something about "youngporn" from the link. I may be switching to another photo site.

'Our own clan' could be McMudcat. I vote for a multi-coloured tartan representing all the different nationalities on here. Joe, Max and the other moderators could be joint Clan Chiefs. Och aye the noo!

A metropolitan was almost my first car but my uncle decided that a car whose tranny was so far gone that they had to mash bananas into it was not right for a new driver. Similar color scheme.

Used to be manufactured and sold as Austin Metropolitans in UK. Haven't seen any for a while but there are still a few about.

http://metropolitanownersclub.co.uk/about-us.php

Saw an immaculate Austin A40 today, similar vintage, predecessor to the Mini.

Fleetwood's annual Tram Sunday event brings hundreds of vintage vehicles such as these into the town's Lord Street for a huge free transport festival.

67 Metropolitans left in the UK, of which 17 are stored off the road.

I did hear a story about Metropolitans being exported and to get round some regulation about complete cars and car parts being taxed differently they were fitted with wooden wheels and sold as "parts".

so THAT's what all the fuss was about. Thank you Joe Offer.

I can confirm, to non-clicking lurkers, that when I went to frogprince's initial blue clicky link in the initial post, I was unable to get to this image in any way. Joe Offer's link is the first I've seen of it. Alles klar Michael r?

For a long time, I assumed the Metropolitan was made in the United States, likely in the American Motors plant in Kenosha, not far from my home in Racine, Wisconsin. Somehow I found out that it was built in the U.S. There weren't too many cars with American labels that were built outside North America.
This one had the rounded-box look of an American Motors car, so I had assumed it was built in Kenosha.

It was made by Austin (later BMC then British Leyland) at Longbridge in the UK, with body made by Fisher and Ludlow, and marketed in the US as a Nash, then Hudson, and then just as a Metropolitan. Sales were less than overwhelming, though, whatever the name.
