    Rattletrap

    I remember as a teenage kid my dad came home one day with a Nash Rambler Metropolitan. It was a very funky little car that had horrible suspension, looked weird, was too small, and always had something wrong with it. In fact, the idea that it was made by Nash told me why the lines of the car were so outdated as Nash hadn't ever designed a car that I liked, but I was a Chevy guy at the time!
    I got this cool Rambler Service Sign from a Collector friend in Texas to remind me of the old Metro that sat out in front of our house which always needed repairing. Bad car but cool sign. It's embarrising to have it anywhere near the Pakard Sign, but that another story! It fits good in the expanding Porcelain Sign Collection at Lakeside Storage in Provo.

      Great sign! Back in the 50`s, our family would travel from Ohio to Florida in a nash. The seat would fold down, four kids would sleep packed like sardines, Mom would lean against the door and Dad would drive all night listening to the Grand Ol Opry-all before interstate highways. Really miss those days! :-(

      Yep! That's what these old signs, gas pumps, and vehicles are supposed to do for us. They take us back to the Good Old Days of our youth and the unrealized dreams we had of African Safaris and living with Robinson Crusoe on an Island in the Pacific.

      Some people refer to the pole sign collections as "Pole Farms". I take that a step farther and call it a "Pole Forest". Obviously I love to play in the Forest!

      Ha, Ha! "It was a very funky little car that horrible suspension" I can attest to that! In 1978 my partner and I bought a Metropolitan with visions of restoring. After paying for it and driving it home we went and picked a couple friends (they do have back seats). We drove down to cruise Main Street in Ventura, Ca. At the first signal we pulled up to a car full of guys pulled up to and pointed at us laughing. So what did I do? Well revved the engine and when the light change popped the clutch. There was a big bang and scream from the rear passengers. We pulled over and found the leaf springs had shattered and hit the bottom of the seat. We limped home and parked it. The next year a friend heard our story a and gave us two Metros, he had for parts. Here 40 years later the 3 sit lined up on our property in Califronia! Thanks for the memories!

      Awesome story! I grew up just over the hill in Topanga beach. The poor mans Malibu before Malibu was discovered and became desireable. I lived in a Street car made in to a house. Wonderful days! I want to buy one of your old Metros for our Museum at Lakeside Storage. Any chance? It will never get restored and doesn't need an engine/trans. Just for looks and memories.

      I had a chance to buy one of these and passed on it a couple of years ago. I regretted it ever since.

      My next trip out to California we will stop by Lakeside Storage and visit with you about one of the Metro's. I have made your Museum one of the items on my bucket list and we always go through Utah when we go to California. I had a brother that lived in Topanga Canyon in the 1960's. My partner and I lived just north of Malibu, at a placed called Bass Rock for the summer of 1974. Small World.
