Car guys will know that the Haynes Repair Manuals were essential reading for the back yard mechanic. Millions are in circulation world wide. I still probably have a couple somewhere. RIP sir.

I remember it was usually the next thing I did after buying a car - grab the relevant Haynes manual. Just something you did.

Same here.


Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.

I liked them best for having complete directions, not just remove the transmission, but step by step. Now days so much is on YouTube...
