Metallica's James Hetfield Donates Cars To Petersen Automotive Museum

Metallica lead singer James Hetfield has donated ten classic cars to the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, CA. Included in Hetfield's donations are a 1948 Jaguar “Black Pearl” and a 1937 Lincoln Zephyr “Voodoo Priest”.

The museum, whose mission is to "explore and present the history of the automobile and its impact on global life and culture," houses vehicles ranging from a 1910 Ford Model T to modern hypercars and an exhibit featuring sci-fi vehicles used in films like Blade Runner and Back To The Future.

The museum intends to pursue a couple of notable ventures in the next year.

The first will be the expansion of free educational programming that will include field trip opportunities, free school admission, and bus programs as well as on-site and outreach educational experiences courtesy of the Armand Hammer Foundation. -- Continue reading Aaron Brophy's feature on the Samaritanmag site
