If you’re a Metallica fan and also a gearhead, you’re going to want to check out this new video featuring James Hetfield’s car collection.

The video was added to the Petersen Automotive Museum’s YouTube channel. Hetfield donated a number of cars from his collection to the famed car museum in 2019.

“These are show cars and they’re drivable, but they’re beautiful to look at. They’re pieces of art,” says Hetfield in the clip below. “I’ve got them sitting in my garage in Northern California. I want more people to see them. Simple as that. I’ve had my time with them. I got my life out of them. The Petersen Museum is the pinnacle of any collection, I would say, of any cars in the world. To be a part of that is an honor.”
