Tom Williams Cadillac is an automobile dealership located in the Grants Mill Automotive Mall in Irondale and operated as part of the Tom Williams Automotive Group by Charlotte, North Carolina's Sonic Automotive Group. The dealership was founded at 325 20th Street South in Midtown Birmingham by Tom Williams. It moved to its current location in 2004. The former dealership was demolished for a Hyatt Place Hotel, which was completed in 2009.

In his 2009 State of the City Address, Birmingham mayor Larry Langford announced that the Serra Automotive Group would purchase the dealership from Sonic and move it to Birmingham's Center Point Parkway. That deal was scuttled after U. S. District Court Judge L. Scott Coogler ruled that General Motors Corp. held the right of first refusal on any sale of the dealership. Serra argued in court that GM planned to close the business. Sonic plans to open a Mini Cooper dealership in its place.
