The Petersen Automotive Museum and Coker Tire will display a curated selection of custom classics from Metallica’s front man James Hetfield’s personal collection August 13 at The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering.
Hetfield’s collection of custom American cars comes from the “Reclaimed Rust” exhibit at Petersen, where the car will be displayed until November 7.
“The Petersen is excited to showcase the collection of beautiful custom vehicles at one of the most renowned automotive events in the world,” Petersen’s executive director Terry Karges is quoted in a press release. “Our exhibit ‘Reclaimed Rust’ is a love letter to legendary rocker James Hetfield’s two most prominent forms of expression and we are delighted to expand its reach to Monterey.”
Vehicles going to The Quail include a 1936 Auburn Speedster replica “Slow Burn,” a 1937 Ford Coupe “Crimson Ghost,” 1939 Packard “Aquarius,” 1953 Buick Skylark “Skyscraper” and a 1956 Ford F-100 “Str8edge.”
The display can be found at the “Coker Tires Presents Reclaimed Rust: The James Hetfield Collection on Loan from the Petersen Museum” exhibit near The Quail’s west entrance.
