With GOOD maintenance, you should be able to get a lot of miles out of not only the engine but the trans too. Rust is usually the killer, or the loose nut behind the wheel.

Sorry I read the number wrong, I thought you had the new low record. Your car looks phenomenal regardless. Can't wait to see it with that push bar on there.

Outside of collision the leading causes of Bull death are, neglect, trans and rust. Pretty much in that order and probably 75% or more of trans failures fall under neglect

Current stable;
88K SHO
138K SHO
164k SE Wagon
Honorable mention 1:
294k LX Wagon, in excellent condition and running like a champ when totaled
Honorable mention 2:
312k Ranger XLT, relevant because it is Vulcan powered.

135,000 2000 Sable with the Duratec. Expertly maintained for at least the last 100,000 miles. There's a few small issues but still runs smooth as silk and pulls real hard above 3500 rpms.
