John Haynes OBE has died

Aye the Hayne's manual has always been a most useful thing to have when buried in the entrails of a vehicle. RIP

The good old Heinz manual. Didn't tell how how to remove seized or broken parts when things went wrong, but a great help in general DIY.

I'm sure he will get an appropriate sendoff.

200 million sales. Must have got something right.

And I am very much appreciate the current trend for books on more general subjects, such as Saturn Vs, Lunar Rover Vehicles, Handley Page Halifaxes etc.

As a pensioner I must add my regrets to the news...……….for the past 50 years first thing I bought when buying a car was the Haynes Manual, it was a great help finding how to remove tricky parts and more recently as he diversified, I started to buy some of the more nostalgic books such as Centurion, Chieftain, etc...………...he has over the years been a great help to me

RIP Sir

 

As someone who drove a running restoration as polite people called the old cars I drove as a nipper, the Haynes Manuals were the only way I could afford to run a car, that and a visit to the breakers yard for the parts !

 

I think the classic phrase "the assembly is the reversal of the dismantling" could have been improved upon however :wall:

 

Cheers Pat

I still have my Haynes manuals for Ford Anglia, Escort, Cortina & Sierra, they have invariably saved me more money than they cost me to buy, a bargain to my mind. Thanks Mr Haynes. RIP.

Steve.
