Pacific Northwest Chapter History
The Metropolitan Owners Club of North America was formed in February 1975, its purpose: to promote interest in the preservation
of, and restoration of the Metropolitan Automobile. The local Pacific Northwest Chapter was formed in February 1979 by Gene
Mitchell and Charlotte Valber of Tacoma, WA. It has grown to become one of the most active car clubs in the Northwest with
well over a hundred active members. You have probably seen us lined up and cruising down the road on our way to a British
Columbia weekend or Ocean Shores gathering: or maybe we were on our way to one of the many local parades we participate in
Our local chapter holds membership meetings in the Puget Sound area each month. We also publish a newsletter which contains
restoration tips, reports on chapter activities, a classified ad section and other features. This newsletter is sent by first
class mail each month to local chapter members. Information and advice are always nearby!
Keeping a Met running and in good, dependable condition can be a problem. Availability of parts is limited, but they are
still obtainable if you know where to look. We can help!
