Metropolitan Pit Stop.

Metropolitan Pit Stop

The Metropolitan Pit Stop Museum is located at a parts store and service center for the classic Metropolitan automobile built in the 1950s. Several examples of this unique small car are on display, most of which have been meticulously restored to original condition, including the prototype Metropolitan station wagon and the incredible Metropolitan Astra-Gnome concept car.
