    I've been using books like this since childhood. The habit carried over to me when I got my own vehicles. Every little thing is tracked in one place. All supporting receipts and documents get stored in a file cabinet at home, this book stays in an interior compartment.

    An added plus is it really shows pride of ownership and proof of maintenance. Just sold my 2008 Pontiac G8 which the buyer was at first concerned that all service records disappeared from Carfax after 2012 (when I bought it). That concern completely disappeared when I broke this puppy out. Take that carfax. The guy asked me if I drove truck for a living. No, just particular about documentation.

    I thought I put that photo up for a second! I've used both those logs over the years. I'm thinking more of a spreadsheet with list of all time/miles limited maintenance and parts where I can take the different dates and miles off the work orders and see where everything stands from one page.

    I use the notes section in the back of the owners manual, plus save receipts. Lastly I use excel as it allows quick math tools.

    All good ideas, have me rethinking my own strategy. An excel document sounds like a great idea

    I included maintenance and the mileage intervals that I want to do the maintenance. Also I added an area for other options like wheels,aux. lights, tires, ect.

    Do not rule out working with your hands, but it does not preclude using your head.
