This month, we have no suurknols lining up for the Lemon honours (yet), but we do have a worthy Cherry winner in Machado Shell. Recently, the hard-working THG bakkie suffered a gearbox problem which forced us to limp from Belfast to Machado with only 3rd. and 4th. gears. Being mechanically gestremd but nonetheless hoping for a solution, we turned in at Machado Shell for help. And help we got. A quick chat to cheerful resident mechanic Jan, to explain the problem, resulted in a replacement clevis pin in old faithful’s gear linkage, 15 minutes and a tiny bill of only R60 before we were back on the road. Fantastic! Thank you Jan and thank you Machado Shell! We have no hesitation in awarding you a Cherry for February for outstanding service!
