I use mine often when working on my motorbike, it's a lifesaver. I agree it's not something you see that much these days, someone under the bonnet with a Haynes manual. I've still got some old one's in the loft, vauxhall cavalier MK2, Renault 19, Ford Fiesta.
I haven't read any of these Haynes manuals dealing with ships and aircraft, but they sound interesting. Hopefully I might win the current book competition.
Anyone on the lookout -|) for the publication date of
Haynes Workshop Manual - 'The Iceberg 1909-1912 '
<<Photograph of an iceberg in the vicinity of RMS Titanic's sinking taken on 15 April 1912 by the chief steward of the liner Prinz Adalbert who stated the berg had red anti-fouling paint of the kind found on the hull from below Titanic's waterline.>>
