Hi everyone, 

If you're interested, here are two of my videos on a couple of great 80s superminis, the humble Austin-Rover Metro (technically 1991) and a K10 Nissan Micra.

In the videos, I talk about the history and development of the two cars, then have a look around them, and finally talk about how they drive.

Hope you enjoy!

Thanks for posting them, they both bring back memories. 


My wife had a similar Metro as her first car in 2002 until a van driver wiped it out and a friend had a K10 Micra as his first car in 1995.  I used to tease them both about how rubbish they were but now I'd rather have either of them over the modern trash that's available.  So simple in design, all they needed were a few handling improvements and a little more power and they'd be perfect.
