Nash Metropolitan

For Illustration Friday: Metropolitan.
We went for a Sunday drive, and I was telling my husband how I had to draw something for this theme: all I could think of was a skyline, and as most of you may know, a skyline is not the type of thing I like to draw. "Maybe you are thinking too literal," my husband commented. A few minutes later, we passed a classic car "show and shine" in the parking lot of a local mall. We thought we would walk through and enjoy the summer sun a little longer. "What a cute car!" I commented, not knowing what type of car it was...then I read the sign - A NASH METROPOLITAN. Synchronicity? I think so!
