James Hetfield's boat tail speedster Auburn
These photos suck becuse of the lousy lighting at SEMA, for very good photos of this car, see the GNRS gallery:http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2010/01/metallicas-lead-singer-james-hetfields.html
The lighting in the Vegas Convention center are terrible for photographing dark colored vehicles, so I'm posting light and dark photos with the idea that one will be better, but I can't decide which one it is.
for other customs that James has had made and put on the show car circuit: http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2007/04/metallica-musicians-are-hot-rodders.html
Jay Leno's 1929 Bentley Speed Six
Jay has a couple new cars in his garage, http://www.moparmagazine.com/2008/sept-oct/another_mopar_for_lenos_collection and http://fuel-efficient-vehicles.org/energy-news/?p=892 and his motorcycle collection: http://big-diesel.blogspot.com/2009/08/harem-of-leno.html
I haven't looked at this for a while, but it's very good, an has a really good coverage of SEMA http://www.jaylenosgarage.com/

welder up rat rod race car and it's Diamond T hauler
Notice the exhaust pipes are behind the cab about as high as the step, and when the ramp is raised horizontally, the vertical structures on top of the ramp slip over the exhaust pipe, and raise the end of the exhaust to well over the cab height... very damn clever!
