Metallica's musical legacy has already become a classic of heavy metal. James Hatfield’s car collection is just as classic and “heavy metal” as his band's music.

The Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles will display a collection of personal belongings of Metallica’s front man from February 1 to October 31, 2020. The exhibition is called Reclaimed Rust. The collection will be displayed for the first time.

Judging by the photos of cars from the music legend’s private collection, James Hatfield is a fan of metal in all its manifestations. A dozen unique hot rods will be presented to the public accompanied by photos of the process of designing these cars, as well as by a video recording about them from Hatfield himself.

Among the exhibits will be a 1948 Jaguar Black pearl, a 1934 Packard Aquarius, a 1953 Buick Skylark Skyscraper, a 1937 Lincoln Zephyr VooDoo Priest, a 1936 Auburn Slow Burn, a 1936 Ford Iron Fist, a 1937 Ford Coupe Crimson Ghost and a 1932 Ford Roadster Black Jack. Each car is built from scratch and in immaculate condition.

Some of Hatfield's instruments will also be shown, including an ESP Hollow Body guitar and a Mesa amp, painted the same color as the Buick Skylark. Hatfield’s two guitars, namely a snow-white ESP Snakebyte and a black ESP, can be bought at auction.

Admission to the exhibition will cost $35, and VIP tickets for the grand opening can be purchased for $99. Full information about the event can be found on the official website of the museum.
