Daveyton’s Chevy Taxis are nearing their last trip as government plan to get rid of them. View the photo-story of the iconic vehicle.
These cabs are very much iconic and getting rid of them would mos-definitely make my experience less exciting or should say ” will not be keeping it real” these cabs(AMAPHELA) are part of Daveyton herirtge and should be celebrated/document?/presserved? or atleast keep one in some corner there…amaphela aya rocker ewase kasi~~~~
the day in the life of my people.I’n on campus right now and I actually miss the noizy hoot that those cockroaches make.Even though they are now looked down upon because of the introduction of Toyota avanzas-which are now called Rats. not taking anything away from the the artistic work by the photographer,he captured the taxis in their true sence.
These vehicles have put Daveyton on the map. getting rid of them would be ripping Daveytons heritage and its soul. the government should rather work on repairing these timeless vehicles
amaphela are one of the Daveyton sympthoms or part of a Daveyton. when u arrive at Daveyton frm somewhere else u first feel that u are at home when u are in the tax. amaphela rocks more than anythings u can find at daveyton we love amaphela and the noise they make.
getting rid of the roaches woul be like removing the water cooling towers,orlando stadium, hector Petersson square from Soweto which would leave Soweto with no historical landmarks or magic of what makes Soweto over and above the charismatic people that live in it, try imagine soweto without Vilakazi street….then picture Daveyton without the Cockroaches..see what I mean..with that beaing said…I am profusely against the eradication of the cockroaches.
(getting rid of the roaches)Theres no way that is happening. I`m currently in durban, originaly from e-Vutta and every once in a while I spot one of them and instantly I get home sick. U go to the net do a search on Daveyton, and the first thing mentioned i-Phela, they make Vutta stand out from the rest of the other Kasis.Wot needs to happen now, some1 has to aproach Chev and ask em to open a service store in D/town, that`ll provide parts for these vintage rhydes..Taking em away,,is just not onn.
I owned one. The government doesn’t care about our legacy, these cars are the pride of Daveyton. They might look ugly and unreliable to them, but to us they are our pride and joy. There’s places where the new Toyota Avanza can not travel in Daveyton but iPhela can. But the government doesn’t see that these cars lasted for many years and they need to give them honor.
maphela ke dilegend tsa vutha,wat makes vutha be n i must say they r the best way 2 go around followd by da most recent avanza.n batong let the avanza ifihle ‘tawtwa
growing up in one of the main streets, that these owesome cars drove past, i hav to say i never needed an alarm clock. plz someone do something we need to bring amaphela back to the streets.
