RIP to an innovator.
I have a few manuals left over from old cars plus one on Engine Management (good book to learn from).
As above...
Buy a car then Haynes manual. More so in the days when I was buying older cars and very much hands-on. It was a must have in those days!
Yesterday we were in Brixham and the Haynes Museum was on our list to visit on the way home. 5 cars left from 9 on the trip.
However time constraints meant we dropped it as it would have meant too short a stay to do it justice.
Just remembered...I bought manuals for the 4/4 and the Plus8 just to get engine details.
Ford Orion for the 1.6cvhefi and Discovery for the V8.

The passing of an era indeed.

I was at school at Hazlegrove, just up the road in Sparkford from the Haynes HQ, before the smart buildings, cafe and museum were built. John Haynes junior was a near-contemporary at the school. He used to arrive in assorted, often eclectic, transportation. I was a boarder, IIRC Haynes was a day-pupil or maybe a weekly boarder, so had rather more trips up the school drive than the rest of us...

A nice but brief tribute to the man from ITV.
