It’s the little things in life that count, which is what Dreamworks Motorsports owner Adam Wolfe, 31, bases his business on. “It’s the small touches that we add to every car and the one-on-one relationships that we build with each customer that sets us apart from our competition,” he says in a Southern accent.
Located in the small community of Roxboro, North Carolina, Wolfe decided to open his own customization shop because the closet one was more than an hour away. Filling the void of the nonexistent customization scene in Roxboro, Wolfe opened the first version of Dreamworks when he was 18 in an old gas station that was no more than 1,000 square-feet back in 1996. He first started out small, installing stereo systems and the like.
Fast forward 12 years and Dreamworks has expanded into a full-fledged customization shop, with a bigger location equaling about 25,000 square-feet. With a reputation in the industry as being a true one-stop shop with the capability of meeting any of their customer’s customizing needs, Wolfe and his intimate team of six employees are constantly busy. “You can come here, and we always have at least 20 cars that we’re working on at the same time, “ he describes. “Right now, we have a Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead, a couple of old schools and some local cars in the shop. We do every type of car imaginable and that shows our versatility. We’ll do everything whether it’s a Phantom or a golf cart.”
