The Petersen Automotive Museum, with Coker Tire as the presenting sponsor of the showcase, has announced it will host a curated display of cars from James Hetfield’s personal collection at The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering on Friday, August 13. The selection of custom American vehicles comes out of the “Reclaimed Rust” exhibit at the Petersen, which combines the Metallica star’s expressive tastes in both music and cars.

“The Petersen is excited to showcase this collection of beautiful custom vehicles at one of the most renowned automotive events in the world,” said Petersen Automotive Museum Executive Director Terry L. Karges. “Our exhibit ‘Reclaimed Rust’ is a love letter to legendary rocker James Hetfield’s two most prominent forms of expression and we are delighted to expand its reach to Monterey.”
