Happy 40th anniversary to the Metro!
Today marks the 40th anniversary of the launch of the Austin miniMetro, celebrate with Metropower by posting your favourite Metro-ing memories!
On this day in 1980 British Leyland launched its "British Car to Beat the World", paving the way for 40 years of Metro motoring. The British Motor Museum and motoring journalists have covered the story in excellent detail so give these a read for the history of our favourite small car...
For even more on the story of the Metro check out Craig Cheetham's new book "AUSTIN AND ROVER METRO - THE FULL STORY"
We'd love to hear your stories and add your favourite photos to a MET40 gallery to mark the day. Either post them on our Facebook page using the link below, tag @metropower.info on Instagram or email firstname.lastname@example.org
