The frontman for the heavy metal group Metallica, one James Hetfield, is a car guy. His complete custom, The Black Pearl, has just been named Custom Car of the Year by the Goodguys Rod & Custom Association!

I expected Hetfield to be a Chevelle, Mustang, Camaro kinda guy...Check this ride out:

That is a work of art.

"What kind of car is it?", you may ask. Well, it's a Black Pearl. You see, the body is all aluminum, and every piece of it started life as a flat sheet. The bodywork is all hand-formed, the entire body was designed by Hetfield, his car pal Rick Dore, and body fabricators Marcel and Luc De Lay.

The frame is a '48 Jag. Motorvation is from a Ford V-8 making 375hp.

More pics and info here.

building a car almost from scratch like that is pretty cool.

It's gorgeous, but impractical. To be any more from scratch they would have to invent steel.

There is a huge collection (250 pics) of hi-res photos from the entire sequence of events, from the beginning to the latest images, surrounding the cave in over at SmugMug.

Really freaky, the whole thing. Did they ever figure out the cause of the sinkhole?

Well, some dude on youtube contends it's all been faked, so that when real sinkholes happen we're all like used to it and we aren't surprised or all that mad. :lol:

Not to my knowledge.

I think they've found the 2001 Z-06 Mallet Hammer, though.

The previous latest was:


The rest of the day will be spent probing and excavating the area to find any signs of the Mallett Hammer...

I bet it was a leaking urinal in the men's room that caused the sinkhole.

I don't know why Kevin Costner made that video.

That had me fuuuuucked up for a minute.

The hoax theory guy DOES sound like Costner!

I didn't pick up on it, and, I've been watching that vid for a week now.
