Hi everyone.

I would like to pay respect to Tiny van Niekerk .
He was the gentle Alfa Giant here in Klerksdorp for many years. Those of you who knew tiny would understand what I mean.

For Tiny it wasn't about the money, the workmanship or even the Alfas themselves.It was about the personality. Here's why: He believed the cars behaved like their owners.So he treated them like he would treat the customer. He didn't even have much. Didn't even own an Alfa himself before he passed away.

I've never seen anyone whom overhauled an alfa 105 series gearbox in 20 minutes. And no not an Syncro scratch of a day old.

He's also the guy whom started to modify the selecter shafts for reverse gears So that it does not bend. Check your 105 series gearboxes. If it has a Paint strip(mine's purple) on the box tiny was there.

Rest in peace my old friend Klerksdorps alfa owners are lost without you.
