Metallica Gives Away Classic Cars

James Hetfield

Well, maybe not “give away” but James Hetfield has graciously donated not one but, 10 classic vehicles from his collection!

James has donated ten of his highly regarded vehicles to the museum, while also being named a “Founding Member,” which is an honor reserved for the museum’s most generous donors.

The list includes Voodoo Priest, which was based on a ’37 Lincoln Zephyr, a ’36 Auburn roadster named Slow Burn, a Delahaye-inspired ’34 Packard, Aquarius, a ’36 Ford in bare metal called Iron Fist, a purple ’56 Ford F-100 pickup truck, and three cars by custom fabricator Rick Dore: Black Pearl, a custom 1948 Jaguar, a ’52 Olds named Grinch, and Skyscraper, a 1953 Buick Skylark.

The vehicles will be displayed this coming February at the Petersen Automotive Museum’s Bruce Meyer Family Gallery. The musician is also donating artifacts and memorabilia from his own and Metallica’s private collections.

Hetfield is currently on tour with Metallica in Europe, with more “WorldWired” tour dates scheduled for the fall. They just announced a tour in South America as well!
