    Default RIP John Haynes

    RIP. John Haynes, the founder director of car manual publisher the Haynes Group has died, aged 80, after a short illness.

    His manuals were very useful. Must have used at least a dozen or so over the years before everything became available on the internet. (">

    I've still got a Haynes MGB manual and Land Rover manual, complete with well thumbed grease and oil stained pages. I often wondered how they made them. Did they buy a new car and just pull it a part and record the process?

    Great books, probably saved a lot of cash back when it was right. A great legacy RIP.
    No sympathy for the devil; keep that in mind. Buy the ticket, take the ride...
