Why: America’s Automotive Trust and LeMay – America’s Car Museum declared Rick Dore the 2022 Master Craftsman award recipient earlier this year. Each year, this award goes to a highly skilled individual who has dedicated their life to a career in automotive restoration and customization. Rick has made a significant impact in the automotive industry with the work he has created throughout his career. He is responsible for the custom work done on many of the cars in Reclaimed Rust: The James Hetfield Collection, working directly with James Hetfield to restore, rebuild, and customize these cars. Having Rick at the Museum to provide his perspective on the work he’s done on the exhibit is a great opportunity to learn more about these hot rods that are currently on display through the end of January.
