Reclaimed Rust: The James Hetfield Collection

On display for just the second time ever, “Reclaimed Rust: The James Hetfield Collection” is the product of decades of design and building collaboration between rock music icon James Hetfield – best known as the frontman for Metallica – and some of the world’s biggest names in custom cars.

Hetfield’s creative horsepower and the talent of his automotive partners – including Rick Dore of Rick Dore Kustoms, Scott Mugford of Blue Collar Customs and Marcel De Lay of Marcel’s Custom Metal – are on full display in the billowing fenders, removed pillars, chopped tops, shaved handles and sinewy silhouettes of these one-of-a-kind automotive masterpieces.

With inspiration pulled from history and artistic movements from Art Deco to film noir, the vehicles of Reclaimed Rust push the boundaries of automotive design.

Come see the power, elegance and style for yourself at LeMay – America’s Car Museum. The collection is on display from January 2022 – January 2023. Reclaimed Rust was organized by the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, California.
