Man sues Jesse James claiming custom car maker never delivered his order

A Nebraska man has sued celebrity custom car and bike-maker Jesse James, claiming the husband of Sandra Bullock and former television host failed to deliver a custom automobile despite paying more $420,000.

Michael B. Jones, of Omaha, Nebraska, filed the suit on Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court against James and his company, West Coast Choppers, Inc.

The lawsuit claims Jones ordered a "sleek and low-slung custom" 1949 Cadillac Sedanette from James and agreeing to pay between $250,000 and $350,000. Jones said he intended to enter the Cadillac in auto show contests.

Jones claims he was told the cost of the car would skyrocket to between $600,000 and $700,000. The car, he said, has never been delivered.

James hosted the cable television show "Monster Garage" from 2003 to 2007. Attempts to reach James or West Coast Choppers by phone and e-mail after hours were unsuccessful.

The civil suit seeks a return of $422,680 that Jones said he paid James, interest, and punitive damages and alleges breach of contracts, fraud and unfair competition.
