The Haynes Repair Manual although used was in good shape. Like all Haynes Manuals it is very good for people who know how to work on cars. My friend who is not an auto tech but works on cars on the side, used the manual to put a new sensor in my Monte Carlo. Of course, you have to know about cars to begin with but Haynes shows each different cars engine in great detail.
I looked at the book before I gave it to a friend as a gift. I found the photos funny not only because the cats and dogs were dressed funny but, also because most of them seem to be saying "why me?". I think at first my friend was put off by the title but she did find the book funny.
