In last month’s newsletter in the item about the 1936 Auburn, I stated that “the original engine (was) sent to Antonio’s Engine Rebuilders in Paarl for a rebuild”. While this statement is correct, the motor was subsequently forwarded to Basticks Engine Rebuilders in Strand Street, Woodstock for further refurbishment and it was they who were finally responsible for the 852 Speedster’s blown straight-eight now smooth-running performance. My apologies for this omission. In fact, Basticks regularly carry out engine overhauls for the museum and is one of FMM’s preferred service providers. By the way, the full story of the Auburn is featured in the June/July issue of Classic & Performance Car Africa. MM
