“I’m obsessed with cars,” Hetfield says. “My dad would, every once in a while come home with a new project...he was always in the garage...there was always a creative flow in that house,” Hetfield recalls. Hetfield says he spent most of his childhood becoming obsessed with cars and guitars and has been restoring classic cars for many years, whilst adding his own flair to them. Hetfield says he join a car club some years ago that put him in touch with some amazing artists. “I was interested in going fast, and then I met through the art world a few artists that ended up all belonging to the same car club.”
Hetfield has now donated his entire collection to the Petersen Automotive Museum. Watch the full story below.
