Ryno Smit

A huge tank you to Ryno (now @ Fury Ford / Mazda Sandton on Witkoppen Rd Rivonia) for assistance with fitting a new clutch and swopping the Bantam's old gearbox back. They did it in less than 90 min 1/2 the time quoted by all others. Also gave me a good labour rate.

I was very impressed, specially more so since I'm not to happy with IMG @ the moment. One of the technicians told me that Ryno has made a vast difference ito moral in the workshop. Juanita du Preez also ex Germiston is the warranty clerk. She used to help mea lot with warranty reports on used MPSs to ensure Mocsa members bought cars with warranty intact.

Seems that Imperial Ford Germiston is not doing well either, many of the staff have CVs in the market place. On another note, I visited Fanie Kleynhans @ Auto Pedigree HO last week, that place is cooking. Fanie & Louis are opening 3 new vehicle recon centres and they are opening a few new retail outlets as well. AP's gain surely was Imperial Germiston's loss. Personaly I would much rather have seen Fanie being the Franchise director for Imperial Ford / Mazda / Jag / LR / Volvo & GM. however he is far higher up the corp ladder within the group now.

Germiston did great under Fanie's leadership. He even pulled them through after paying a huge warranty penalty to FMCSA on modded STs, the Sias debackle et al. They almost immediately replaced the previous ST workshop volume by getting more bakkies in from fleet owners.

However I dont see I to eye with the new team at Germiston, its probably the same with other former customers as well. I gave the new Maxda dealer a few good plans to get more cars into their workshop, but they're not doing anything about it.
