James’ 1964 Cadillac Coupe Deville (Video Inside)


There is nothing more fitting than checking out James Sciara’s 1964 Cadillac Coupe Deville in the middle of Downtown Las Vegas! This car looks at home in front of what all of us locals know is the real downtown. As you can see in the photo on this page, this car roams the streets with elegance! As you can imagine, there has to be some story behind this build and we wanted to find out. So get to know a little about the owner and the car below! James is 35 years old. He was born in New York but moved to Las Vegas when he was 4 and has lived here ever since. His parents have owned a local pizzeria for over 30 years now (Enzo’s Pizza & Ristorante) and he has been managing the business since high school. He remembers days where he had to ditch school to run the store because the cook had called out! James is engaged to the lovely Ashley Baxter, daughter of poker star, Billy Baxter. They have known each other since they were 4 years old but didn’t start dating until they reconnected at their 10 year high school reunion and the rest is history!

James has been into cars as long as he can remember. He bought his first car at age 15 before he even had his drivers license. He immediately found himself sending his car out to Audio Xcellence to get 3 12W6 subs and TV’s in the headrest! After that he was hooked! After a long list of projects, he found himself with a car addiction with no cure! (We know the feeling)

Although James has a few different cars today, this one holds some sentimental value as it has a little family history for him. Throughout his entire childhood, his grandma was a Caddy person. He remembers back in the day she would pick him and his brother up from school in her showroom condition 1976 Cadillac Coupe Deville! James says “This car was boss!”. His Grandma always talked about her black on black 64 Coupe Deville that she totaled in a rain storm back east. It was one of her favorites! James Grandma passed away in 2008, she left her 76 Cadillac to his uncle. He tried to buy the car from him to keep it in the family but James said “He was a prick and sold it to some dealer off Boulder highway”. In July, 2017 James decided to buy this 64 Coupe Deville. He remembered his Grandma wishing she still had hers and thought it would be the perfect opportunity to build a bad ass daily driver! (No garage queen here) His car is called The Dark Night.

Overall, this car turns heads! With a full frame off restoration, LS1 engine, custom notched frame, C10 suspension conversion and so much more, James says he knows his Grandma would be proud of this car!
