NZ Performance Car - - Inside Line -

C’s Garage is al­most a house­hold name among the drift­ing com­mu­nity. Adam and Joel Hedges are well known for build­ing rad Sil­vias and SR20s, sell­ing their very popular T-shirts, and killing the drift­ing game with some of the best-pre­sented cars in the D1NZ cham­pi­onship, and now they’re open­ing their fa­mous fab­ri­ca­tion work­shop to the public full time.

Adam, who is a qual­i­fied builder by trade, has been fab­ri­cat­ing his own gear — some of the best roll cages in town and the fa­mous 555 knuck­les — in-house since 2007, but now de­mand has grown to a stage where in­stead of sling­ing a ham­mer around on-site dur­ing the day, he’ll use the welder and grinder full time at the shop. C’s garage will be a fab­ri­ca­tion shop mainly, but will have popular items on the shelf such as the 555 knuck­les, Sil­via bash bars, and TD06 ac­ces­sories. The C’s team also has a dis­play room for brands such as Parts Shop Max, Ori­gin Labo and Nangkang avail­able for pur­chase on site.

Adam and Joel have been flat out over the last month get­ting ready for the launch, which has in­volved some se­ri­ous changes to the build­ing, like the new hoist that has just been in­stalled and stick­ered up with C’s Garage brand­ing, and which will al­low them to carry out jobs like en­gine con­ver­sions. The shop has barely opened, and al­ready it’s full of some of the coolest drift cars in the coun­try. We are look­ing for­ward to see­ing what the team at C’s Garage can pro­duce now it’s fab­ri­cat­ing full time out in Kumeu.
