For years now, the Cadillac de Ville has been a favorite of mine, topping the list of cars that I know I’ll have to own someday. While I’m more partial to the sedans myself, it’s been a long time coming that we get the chance to feature any member of the de Ville family. Cody Craven’s 1966 Cadillac Coupe de Ville hits all the right spots, leaving us to question why we continue to tinker with anything but classic American Iron.
The Daily Driver. There’s a certain dedication required when you enter into the commitment of daily driving the same car that accompanies you to every show through the season. The pot holes and speed bumps make your oil pan and suspension bushings cringe on your way to work. The rock chips and bug splatters threaten the glossy exterior as your car clocks away countless highway miles on a road to somewhere new.

When it comes to car builds, the reasons behind them, and the paths taken to execute them, I find that there are two types of people, and with them, two very different mindsets. There are those that build cars for notoriety, whether it’s for the horsepower wars, or just plain attention they seek – they are driven by the reaction and appreciation of their peers, and there’s nothing wrong with that.
For a while, there’s silence. The distance disappears through the fog on a cold Sunday morning and half of the cars remain covered up, having spent the night outside despite each one’s 7-digit value. The sun has only been up for a moment and morning dew condenses on the nose of a Bugatti type 35 as the owner prepares it for the coming race.
