    Metallica front man James Hetfield has long been into custom cars and hot rods but the past few years has taken his passion to another level teaming with famed stylist Rick Dore.
     At the Goodguys 28th All American Get-Together in Pleasanton, Hetfield’s “Slow Burn” took home the top prize. Designed by Hetfield and Rick Dore with paint and body artistry by Darryl Hollenbeck of Vintage Color Studio, “Slow Burn” edged out of top class field of customs including Scott Bonowski’s ’50 Merc from Signal Hill, Richard Zocchi’s ’68 Dodge Polara from Walnut Creek, Lionel Duran’s ’60 Buick from Salinas and Dore’s other entry – a candy blue 1950 Cadillac.
    With a unique blend of concourse style elegance and traditional custom flare, Hetfield’s Auburn had the crowd cheering. This marked the first time the car had been shown outdoors. The candy Root beer House of Kolor looked amazing in the bright sun as did all the brass, nickel plated brightwork courtesy of Sherm’s plating. The one off Colorado Custom Wheels were designed by Hetfield himself. The tandem of Definitive Audio and Bob Divine handled the roadster’s leather upholstery to masterful specs. Keith Dean designed the Carson Top.
