The musical facet of James Hetfield as vocalist and guitarist for Metallica is well known to everyone, but what some may not yet know is that the musician has another passion: that of restoring and customizing cars. James Hetfield has always shown himself to be passionate about cars, although his collection is very particular.

Metallica singer James Hetfield is a huge car fan. Proof of this is its magnificent collection, although it has models that many will find strange because they are vehicles from the other side of the Atlantic, or an outrage because it has several classic cars tuned with a Hot Rod look that, although they look like exhibition vehicles, are actually suitable for driving on the street.

Such is his hobby that we can even read about it, thanks to ‘Reclaimed Rust: The Four-Wheeled Creations Of James Hetfield‘, a book in which the artist revealed all the details of this hobby. For the time being, we have already been able to take a look at this collection thanks to the Petersen Automobile Museum, to which Hetfield has donated 10 cars that he has customized himself for an exhibition

A video of almost five minutes, with which you can take a complete tour of the Hetfield collection, is available below.
