My dads '81 3/4ton Chevy PU has 230k on it... but the new engine only has ~20k. Slightly built 350. ~340hp.

The V6 that was in it when he bought it was toast.

My uncle got rid of his 86 (maybe 87) Blazer when it hit 300,000 miles. Still on the original engine.

My '92 eclipse just rolled over the 100,000 mile mark last week. I expect it to spontaneously burst into flames sometime in the next week.

Heh.. It's a pretty fun little(big?) truck. It can move.. or at least it feels like it's moving.

10.5CR, 4bbl, moderate cam.. that's all I really know. It really sucks down the gas, and requires premium.. that's the only thing that sucks about it. Whenever he pulls onto the freeway, he calls it "flushing the toilet".. lol. I think he gets maybe 13MPG highway.. any stop and go kills it though, probably like 5-8mpg city.

The 3 speed manual is dying though, so he doesen't push it much. It's leaking from every gasket and seal, he has to have it refilled every couple of months.

I think he wants to put a newer 5 speed in it when it dies. Would help with gas milage a bit.

I'm a little over 200K on my 1993 Taurus SHO. It still runs great and everything on the car actually still works.
