In December of 1998, as private collectors of classic cars, we began driving weddings and special events purely as a hobby, for family, friends, and friends of friends -- and only by referral. We had the privilege of meeting and working with many of Birmingham's top wedding professionals.

We strive to be friendly, professional, and at your service. We've even studied the bygone methods of chauffeur etiquette to make sure we provide a classy, authentic experience! Our cars provide an excellent canvas for photographers -- and we enjoy working with them to make sure you get the best possible shots. As the years go by, a classic car will always be in style in your wedding photos!

Professionals in the wedding, event, and entertainment industries know the best, and choose the best. We have been privileged to serve these organizations, and many of their owners, family, and staff members for their own weddings and special occasions Read less

We booked the Betsy, the 1934 Chevy, for our wedding. We received so many comments from our guests about this car! Our guests seemed to love it! Booking was a very easy process and I was able to pay over the phone. Our driver was courteous and professional.

I really really wanted to ride off in a vintage rolls royce and Coats had one on their website I loved. We waited till fairly close to wedding time to book (had to make sure we had the funds) but thankfully "Catherine" was still available. It's not a cheap ride at all, and we had to change our plans to use sparklers since you can't have a flame near the cars. We used good ole fashioned bad for the environment confetti (which looked great in the pics...and in our friends' front yard for weeks after). The car did almost break down at the end of the driveway and our driver kept having to catch his door as it swung open of its own accord....but, overall, I got what I wanted!

Very professional, had the perfect car for bride and groom. Took them from church, to reception, to hotel. Very reasonable and kept his word about everything we ask for. Will definitely use them again!

I absolutely love the cars that Coats carries! They are vintage and restored beautifully! My husband and I rented "Helen" the 1954 Roll-Royce Silver Wraith and she was a beauty. All of our guests loved atking pictures by the car out in front of our reception venue. Not to mention the pictures of us by our car were amazing! I have to admit James (the owner) is very hard to get in touch with. But with persistence he got back to me bc I had my wedding planner call him as well.

Overall, the car we got was beautiful. It was the 1959 Mercedes-Benz 300d 'Adenauer' named Conrad. Originally, however, our 1st choice was the 1959 Jaguar Mk. IX named Caroline. Unfortunately, the day before our wedding we received a call from the company informing us that the car was experiencing technical difficulties. It was a bit disappointing especially since the company didn't even offer a discount in price as a good business gesture. We paid about $500 for a car that was not our 1st choice. As I said, the car we ended up getting was beautiful but it would've gone a long way if they'd offered us a discount.

Aside from that issue, the driver was professional & polite. He removed the windows of the car & as we drove down the road (scenic route of course) we received congratulatory honks, shouts, & waves from passersby. It was a great way to end the event...riding away in style.

Coats classic cars was great! We loved the chevy. We even thought we were going to have to leave our reception early (due to rain), so they sent someone out early just in case. He waited there even though we didn't leave. He took us to change clothes and then to our hotel. They helped with a great finale to a lovely evening.

I would not recommend Coats Classic Cars. The car I rented was not available. I tried to confirm my car rental the day before my wedding no response. I tried to confirm my car rental the day of the wedding no response, then he finally calls later that day. Then while I was taking pictures about an hour before my wedding, he calls to let me know that the car I had rented was not going to be available bc it would not crank. So I was not happy with car that was brought bc it was not what I had rented. It was a nice car, it was just not what I had paid $395.00 for.
