Comment:
Older Afrikaans also has tjor-tjor, which carries the same meaning (tjor is an onomatopoeic form referencing the sound typically made by older vehicles). Reduplications involving onomatopoeic elements are common in the spoken language and constitute a prominent feature of many "in-group" varieties (thus they frequently don't have much longevity; reduplication in this context is, however, very productive).
