Austin Metro Review (Top Gear 1991)
Quentin Wilson gives a review of the first generation Austin Metro (1980 to
1990 models), pointing out it's short comings, such as the rust issues and
the somewhat unreliable Hydragas suspension and the A-Series engine. As a
result, these cars are now as rare as hen's teeth.

The Triumph Motor Company was a British car and motor manufacturing
company. The Triumph marque (trade-name) is owned currently by BMW. The
marque had its origins in 1885 when Siegfried Bettmann (1863--1951) of
Nuremberg initiated S. Bettmann & Co and started importing bicycles from
Europe and selling them with his own trade-name in London. The trade-name
became "Triumph" the year next, and in 1887 Bettmann was joined by a
partner, Moritz (Maurice) Schulte, also from Germany. Beginning in 1889 the
businessmen started producing their own bicycles in Coventry, England.
In November 1944 what was left of the Triumph Motor Company and the Triumph
trade-name were bought by the Standard Motor Company and a subsidiary
"Triumph Motor Company (1945) Limited" was formed with production
transferred to Standard's factory at Canley, on the outskirts of Coventry.
The pre-war Triumph models were not revived and in 1946 a new range of
Triumphs was announced, starting with the Triumph Roadster. The Roadster
had an aluminium body because steel was in short supply and surplus
aluminium from aircraft production was plentiful.
In the early 1950s it was decided to use the Triumph name for sporting cars
and the Standard name for saloons and in 1953 the Triumph TR2 was
initiated, the first of a series that would be produced until 1981.
