Happy birthday, Haynes


morris-marina-manualCar manual publisher Haynes is 50 years old. Somerset’s finest has sold more than 150 million copies and is a still a family business. The BBC reports.

Pictured is the manual for the Morris Marina – the worst car ever created in the history of the world. My mother’s lasting memory of our Morris Marina is probably when I was sick on the vinyl seats as we were driving to the doctor’s surgery. I’ll never forget that journey. We got rid of the car not long after that incident.
