'Tontel' is something like kindling or a wick that burns easily.

02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

Tonteldoos is a tinder box. Old way of lighting things using a striker and a piece of flint with some dry tinder.

Never heard of just Tontel as far as I know it does not exist in Afrikaans
"These are not machines for the meek. Ride it like you stole it, cane it within an inch of its life. It will require a bunch of maintenance and generally tend to be, shall we say, harsh? It was bred for racing, after all. It will devour rear tires and its lust for fuel will astound you. It will suffer indifference and carelessness very poorly. Like heroin and Asian girls, it's not for everybody, but when you absolutely, positively, GOTS to beat every m*****f****** in the race, accept no substitu

Ja nee, there should be a fine for this ;D
I paid the fine towards some "wannabee racer" in some dak-aar or somting event ... :biggrin:
And then the fred went south on what is a tonteldoos..
But good to notice there was some exchange of wisdom and things were learnt   ;)
