Big fan of Metallica, even bigger fan of their frontman's cars....... The Crimson Ghost is probably my favorite..... :D

Well, sein' as how I worked with the shop that built this one (for several years while it was being built...though I didn't work ON this particular car), I'd have to say I like the guy's choices as to what he spends money on.

I like the Deuce better than the fat-fendered thing.

That started out as a '37 Ford..... I've thought about trying to model it using the Revellogram kit........

He usually works with Rick Dore, and the design work is always top-notch. My personal favorite of the customs is "Slow Burn", based on an Auburn replica (not a real one, as has been stated from time to time). I could definitely drive this.

Those would make a great line of custom kits for Revell...I esp. like the 'Slow Burn' and the 'Black Pearl' '48 Jaguar..

I've always liked the "ballad" type songs of theirs better than the speed metal stuff.........

STR8 EDGE!

James is THE reason I got serious about playing guitar, and Metallica was one of my biggest influences, even though my bands never really sounded like them.

As a rhythm player, he was definitely my biggest influence. Scott Ian from Anthrax a close second.

And then when I found out he was a car guy? Made him even cooler in my eyes.

I don't typically like hot rods per se, but if any model company chose to do kits of his builds, I'd buy every one.

Great minds think alike, obviously. That was my first thought when I saw that car.   :D
