Our world is changing daily.

Five years from now, we will look back on this as an extraordinary time in our lives.

But for the moment, we don’t know from one moment to the next how much — or how little — freedom we will have.

I suggest that you to take this moment to codify your experiences with the cars you own.

I’ve always wanted to keep a journal of my experiences with my cars. One where I notated each trip I took, each repair I made and each tank of gas I bought.

Take this time of quiet to assemble the information you have about your car and memorialize it in an organized fashion.

Our cars have become historical artifacts, and they deserve to have their time in our ownership recorded.

In this time, while we are not driving very much at all, put your experiences with your cars down on paper. Do it for yourself and for the next caretaker of your car.

  1. Done! My early 1967 E-Type Roadster. It’s in two volumes, each about a hundred pages long. One is an illustrated history, the other pictorial–physical volumes of all receipts and photos since taking ownership in 1971. I’ve also converted them into PDFs (for safe backup) with annotations on each milestone receipt and pic. I actually did this with my son in mind, as he’ll end up being the car’s next caretaker after my demise.
