When I saw the Haynes logo on a press release just now, my mind went back to all those days spent with cold cups of tea and a socket wrench on knee-bashing driveways with bits of un-assembled clutches lying about and a copy of the relevant Haynes manual, dog-eared with oily fingers!
All those beautiful cut-away drawings and part numbers...
And I know that in recent years Haynes have published some rather exotic 'Owners Workshop Manuals' in exactly the same style for Spitfires & Lancaster bombers
So it is a bit of a disappointment to see that the latest Haynes publication is on Concorde, but it isn't a manual, just a coffee table picture book. Ho Hum.
