4x4 Australia spent the weekend as guests of Ironman 4x4 at the grand opening of Cairns to Cape 4x4 in Cairns.
Nathan Lockyer is bit of a mechanical legend up in Far North Queensland and folks come from all around to have him work on and maintain their 4x4s. Nathan and his wife Lana have taken a big step and moved from their old workshop to a new purpose-built facility.
The new store features a huge showroom with all the latest products from Ironman 4x4 and other leading brands on display and there’s a friendly staff on hand who know their stuff and are all too willing to help you get the right gear for your vehicle.
Out the back are four work bays with new hoists, a specialised 4x4 wheel alignment rig and racking for products. The shop has two qualified mechanics as well as two fitters on staff so that C2C can handle all your 4x4 needs including accessory installation, suspension work, mechanical repairs, diff and gearbox rebuilds and pre trip inspection.
This makes C2C the perfect last minute stopover on your way to The Cape to ensure your 4x4 is up to the challenge.
Opening weekend special prices saw Ironman fridges, winches and other accessories running out the door with plenty of forward booking to keep the boys in the shop busy for the next few months. There was a jumping castle for the kids, Cairns surf life-saving club manned the sausage sizzle and a great display of Ironman vehicles from around the country.
Despite the wet weather the crowds were constant across the weekend an one lucky fella even won himself a brand new three-meter Quintrex tinnie just for being there and entering the draw!
The new Cairns To Cape 4x4 is at 116 Aumuller Street Bungalow in Cairns or you can find them online at www.cairnstocape4x4.com. Phone number for the friendly staff there is 07 4053 5900. Check them out on your next trip north.
