The collection includes a vast array of automobiles that Hetfield built from scratch resulting in a diverse compilation of rolling sculptures. At once classic and modern, Hetfield’s vehicles assert both a reverence for history and a disregard for convention, standing collectively as a testament to the musician’s distinctive personality and artistic energy.
