I expect lots of you folk on here will have great regard for John Haynes who died on 8 February 2019. Read his obit in The Times today, it is an excellent piece. What a great bloke and a bit of a looker in his RAF days. The OH has fond memories of the jalopies he owned in his youth and the Haynes Manuals that helped him keep them on the road.

I too have many memories - some fond, some not so fond, of wrestling with many old and obstructive cars and parts witht the aid of many a 'Haynes' manual over the impecunious times of yesteryear.

Thanks John, great books, much appreciated, RIP.

I've lost count of the number of Haynes manuals i bought over the years and still have a few around the house. They were excellent books though by the 90's the quality declined imo with poor photographs and somewhat vague description.

Sad loss but he had a very good life and brought pleasure and enlightenment to many! Thanks Mr Haynes!!

I too amassed a big collection of Haynes manuals over the years and I donated all of them to the Pembrokeshire Motor Museum near Haverfordwest who were delighted to get them!
