Are there any recommendations for a maintenance record book?
On the vehicles I drive I've kept records of every fuel stop, oil change, and all other maintenance and/or repairs in a notebook. I've even tried to create a spreadsheet for it.
I'm hoping there was something a little more "professional" you folks might know about.
Thanks.

I've got a 3 ring binder for storing my records and I also include my annual state inspections as well. Anything I do to the vehicle gets recorded. Not sure it does much for me, but I think it will mean a lot to the second owner. I was talking to a guy at out local Cars & Coffee meet and he mentioned to me that when he bought used cars from a previous owner he "buys the person" and the care they provided for the car, more so than just the car alone.

If kept up, then in the long, long run (25+ years) this will increase the show scores and dollar value of the car as it will be a major differentiator and proof of service/maintenance.

I use an app for recording service, gas, etc that I used to record in a book. The app is called Gas Cubby, really convenient right on your phone. I've kept written records for several vehicles, and not once asked about it from a new owner. I am sure it could be downloaded to printed form if needed. You can keep as many vehicles as you own right on the app, with service reminders that popup when you get in the app as they come due.

Two - 3 ring binders & spreadsheet

One has the title, window sticker, purchase docs, accessories etc.
In the other is maintenance / service records.
Also keep a spreadsheet.

One of the things that would be good to do in addition to having the maintenance items is to have early pictures (of the car in its shipping cover) and perhaps a piece of that cover included in your binder. The binder is also a good place to include all the paperwork that came with the car, as well as a build sheet if you got one.
