...for Inspiration:

- My Mother & Late Father for buying me my first car, an Apache, obviously, and the hours spent keeping it mobile, and smart!

- My wife for her long suffering patience!

...for material provided and more inspiration:

- Ryno Verster (South Africa) to whom I am extremely indebted for his efforts emailing me so much of the material.

- Mr Ralph Clarke, Engineering Manager at Blackheath from 1955, for preserving all the material in the first place, and also for his and his wife's kind hospitality during a meeting on the 6th January 2007 at their lovely home in Cape Town.

- Kevin Hogan, an Authi owner in Queensland for the scan of the Apache TC brochure.

- The numerous contributors of pictures such as Paul Cowie and Michel Nunes.
