Orion Custom Car + Motorcycle Show, curated by METALLICA frontman James Hetfield, will be part of Orion Music + More, the two-day festival created by METALLICA, set to take place June 23-24 at Bader Field in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
Over 300 of the best customs, hot rods, muscle cars and custom motorcycles will be on display at the Orion Custom Car + Motorcycle Show inside the festival grounds throughout the weekend. Orion ticket holders can check out incredible machines from across the world, including celebrity cars in the Primo Palace like James Hetfield‘s 1936 Auburn Roadster Slow Burn Kustom and 1937 Lincoln Zephyr Voodoo Priest Kustom by styler and builder Rick Dore.
