James Hetfield (also a member of the Beatniks car club) had a cool customized 53 Buick Skylark (named Skyscraper) at the Grand National Roadster Show (formerly the Oakland Roadster show), and won the Most Elegant Custom at the San Fran Custom Show and Kirk Hammet had his 36 Ford GNRS too, and they were both pictured in Street Rodder magazine.

James Hetfield's Buick showed up in Street Rod Builder magazine, April 2007, page 67 for the overall magazine

Kirk's 36 here

James also has a few that show up on a 36 black Ford

The Rodders Journal had an article too, if I come up with a link or pic I'll put it here for several pics of JH's '36, his under-construction truck a '56 F100 custom by Blue Collar Customs of Sacramento
