Our ‘Dream Team’

Layne McDougal | Owner & Founder

Layne’s love of classic cars shifted into high gear when her son was planning to marry. She saw an opportunity to be a part of the wedding community and with the support of her husband Prince, she purchased the 1951 Packard convertible known as Ruby. In March of 2021, Dream Drives BHM, LLC (“Dream Drives”) was incorporated. In 2022, a 1942 Packard Clipper and a 1958 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud we’re added. In July 2023, Charlotte completed our current collection.

A Message from Layne:
“All four of our automobiles are special to Dream Drives, as well as, to our family personally. We love these cars and are proud of them; we give them the respect they deserve because they are from a golden age in automotive history. We feel an obligation to maintain them, keep them true to their original design and color and drive them with utmost care. We love having the opportunity to share these beautiful vehicles from a by-gone era with others and hear stories from people sharing their memories of older cars. We also believe it’s an honor to drive newlyweds away from their wedding reception to begin their lives together! 

This journey has been a learning experience in multiple ways, lots of hard work and so very rewarding! We have met so many wonderful people through the wedding industry, families and guests at weddings, newlyweds, as well as, automobile mechanics, collectors and strangers asking for a photo.”
