    John Haynes RIP

    Just heard that John Haynes (he of the Haynes Workshop Manuals) has died.
    There's a gap to fill.

    Where would we be without Haynes manuals?

    RIP, John. I hope that the museum can continue as a lasting tribute.
    Although no trees were harmed during the creation of this post, a large number of electrons were greatly inconvenienced.

    Indeed. Iím a regular visitor and will be there this Sunday. I imagine there will be a suitable tribute at the museum.

    Johnny Haynes

    Sad to hear of his passing.
    I started my working life at Halfords in 1976 and the amount of Haynes manuals we sold was astounding.

    I had many a Haynes manual in my early car ownership, amazing attention to detail in them and so helpful.

    A sad loss, probably never to be emulated in this day and age of disposable pretty much everything.

    The Haynes manuals were ,I suspect , the first bit of technical info a lot of us had real use for. They were a real help and a pleasure to use, but rather oil absorbent !!! Top chap and I really must visit the museum.

    The museum is actually pretty good and has a wide selection of vintage, classic and unusual cars plus a few motorbikes too. A nice friendly place, with the feeling of a family run business.
