Maintenance Records

Here's a comprehensive list of all the maintenance, repairs, upgrades, and general upkeep of this 1990 Volkswagen Vanagon Westfalia Multivan throughout our ownership.  Unfortunately there were no earlier maintenance records available, but I was assured that "the head gaskets had just been replaced" before I purchased. So far, I have no evidence to doubt that.  The engine is clean and leak-free. Fingers crossed...
