‘Reclaimed Rust: The Four-Wheeled Creations Of James Hetfield’ was unveiled via YouTube yesterday (June 17). The limited edition, leather-bound book is set for release on July 28.

Hetfield’s book showcases eleven cars. Metal Injection reports that the cars featured include a 1937 Lincoln Zephyr and a 1936 Auburn Roadster. Others include a Delahaye-inspired 1934 Packard Aquarius, a 1936 Ford in bare metal and a purple 1956 Ford F-100 pickup truck.
The box-set also includes a Reclaimed Rust car club plaque, a keychain and shop rag featuring Hetfield’s logo and selected lithographs of his cars.
Hetfield previously published a children’s book with Metallica in late 2019. Entitled The ABCs of Metallica, the “rhyming, illustrated history of Metallica from A to Z” came out in November.
In other Metallica news, drummer Lars Ulrich revealed that Metallica have been working on a new album over Zoom. Ulrich said that the band had been participating in a “weekly Zoom connect” since the beginning of lockdown, but only recently began “exchanging some ideas” for a new album.
Ulrich also recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live over Zoom. Surprising a nurse fan, he revealed that Metallica would release a new box set later in the year. ‘S&M2’ will feature recordings from the band’s 2019 performances with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra.
