So Metz fans do any Metz Master 6 models still exist? We would like to know. Email us at and we will share the information on the website.


Thank you to Metz Fan Steve Miller for sending us the link to this photo of a Metz Dealer. In the window is a sign for Metz Master 6.

Washington, D.C., circa 1920. “Lanza Motors Co., exterior, 14th Street.” Lanza Motors sold a car called the Metz; neither would be long for this world — a world whose sidewalks were trod by ectoplasmic pedestrians.

Washington, D.C., circa 1920. “Lanza Motor Co. — Greenwich Village Girls.” Somewhere under this mass of pulchritude is the Metz Master Six automobile. National Photo Company Collection glass negative.
