老闆譚結南先生13、4歲開始從事維修汽車,由最初的街邊修車,到現在繼承父業,是店舖的第2代東主。開業初期,大約70至80年代,譚氏以修理貨車為主。

由於當時的香港的經濟全面起飛,深水埗的工業區隨之然變得興旺,正正因為這個原因,為譚氏一家主理的貨車維修行進入鼎盛時期。東主譚先生憶述當時店舖內顧有5至6位「伙記」,是車行的黃金期。但直到90年代開始,部份工廈轉成貨倉,人流減少,修理貨車一行開始息微。為解決生計問題,譚先生提倡令汽車廠現代化,包括購入一些新的工具和學習新的修車技術,希望可以提升維修不同的車種,除了維修貨車以外,還提供維修私家車服務,增加收入。

談到深水埗與長沙灣,譚生說當初父親剛到香港,看中了深水涉區比較多貨車,有一定的客源,所以就開始了在深水埗生活。他小就在深水埗一帶成長,街坊鄰理之間的關係很親密,年少時常常和朋友到附近的山和水塘玩樂。譚生到近期才搬離長沙灣,但仍會覺得長沙灣才是自己的生活圈子。

Timeline: Around 1970s

Business Type: Car Repairing

Address: G/F, 631 Fuk Wa Street, Cheung Sha Wan.

From repairing cars on the street to inheriting his father’s business to become the 2nd generation of Tam Pei Motor Repairing, the owner, Mr. Tam has been in the industry since the age of 13 or 14. The shop started business in the 1970s or 1980s, with business focus on repairing trucks.

The economy of Hong Kong was at its peak at that time, Sham Shui Po also became very prosperous. It is precisely the reason why Mr. Tam’s business entered its heyday. Mr. Tam recalled that golden period with 5 or 6 staff working in the shop. However, from the 1990s onwards, many industrial buildings were converted into warehouses. With a reducing flow of people, the car repairing industry started to decline. To support his livelihood, Mr. Tam advocates modernizing his repairing business. He incorporates new tools and methods for car repairing, hoping to enhance maintenance of different types of vehicles. In addition to trucks repairing, he also offers car repairing services to increase revenues. 

Speaking of Sham Shui Po and Cheung Sha Wan, Mr. Tam said when his father first came to Hong Kong, he noticed there were more trucks in the area, so he decided to settle in Sham Shui Po. Mr. Tam grew up in the district and has a very close relationship with the neighborhood. He still remembers the good old days having fun in nearby mountains and reservoirs with his friends. Mr. Tam moved to Cheung Sha Wan recently but still he always belongs to Sham Shui Po.
