About Us

A little about us …

Shane and I have grown up on the Gold Coast we both went to Palm Beach Currumbin High School.  Shane has always loved anything mechanical and was destined to be a Mechanic.  The general story is you can tell a mechanics car by how unloved it is?  … well not Shane.  His pride and joy (apart from his family) is his 1972 Rambler Hornet powered by a 360 Chrysler. (please insert appropriate appreciation noise here)  Shane lovingly built this car from the ground up when he was in his 20′s and later sold it.  Regretting his decision, he was quick to buy it back when it come up for sale and it has now had a brilliant makeover from the original green paint to the vibrant orange you can see in our website!

Shane has worked in the Tweed Heads / Coolangatta area for about 20 years at some of the major dealerships.  This experience has given him extensive knowledge of a huge variety of makes and models.  Apart from your everyday mechanical needs, Shane has also been very heavily involved in the building and repairing of muscle cars … making sure Coolangatta Automotive gets you the best performance possible out of your engine.

Our family life is eventful and busy with our four beautiful children … 3 little princesses and our one little man … and we are very proud of what we have achieved on both a personal and business level.

We are committed to making our business the very best it can be and provide you with first class service … that always comes with a smile … and if you have time stay a while and we’d love to have a chat.

Yours in grease … Mandy
