The Austin miniMetro was launched on the 8th October 1980, as a 'British car to beat the world' and by the time production ceased in 1997 there were over 2 million cars made. Today there are probably less than 1% of these cars surviving and a Forum was formed in January 2008 by a group of enthusiasts, with a fully constituted Owners Club following in January 2009.
Our aim is to encourage preservation with a club where members can source advice relating to repairs and spare parts. We also maintain a presence through national events, at which club members can attend to show their cars and thereby promote awareness of the significance of the Metro historically. Joining our Forum is free and, should you then choose to join the Owners Club, the subscription is only £10 per year.
This is a new club for mini owners in South Yorkshire and we attend all the local shows and even some a bit further away.
