There was a thread like this in the Tech or the Seville section years ago...some of them broke three hundred thousand...and I THINK, but could be wrong, that one of them broke four hundred? Correct me here, old timers!

The record was for a '79 Deville with something like 700,000 miles on the original engine! Try that with a Northstar!

The highest I know of is Thu's (I think that's the correct person) '93 Sedan deVille with 298k on the original motor.

There's an unusual number of 200k+ early Northstars that show up on eBay.

I've heard this as well, it's like 698,000 or something like that.

700,000?! Wow, I didn't think any engine w/o replacing everything could last that long.

Diesels do it all the time! But that is rare for a gas engine.

Long live the big blocks!

Mercedes actually has a "million mile club" for all the owners of the Diesel Benzes that get 1,000,000 miles on them.

I wonder how many miles I've driven so far in my life...Granted, I'm only 23 years old, but I lived fifteen miles from town for most of that 23 years, I've driven across the country three times and done more fifteen and sixteen hundred mile round trip road trips than I care to count...I bet I could get a randomly generated but modestly accurate estimate if I tried...may have to do that later in the day when my head clears up a bit. :)

Heck, in the 8 months I owned my Roadmaster, I put on 11k miles!

From car-nection.com

"In the 1996 Guiness book of records we note that the world record for a gas driven car without an engine overhaul is a 1979 Cadillac Deville, as of June 1 1996, with 661,183 miles. The car is owned by Don Champion of Louisville, KY."

if only it could have made it 5,000 more miles...

I thought that was Volvo... ah they probably both have that.

Of course his name is Don Champion!

My 1988 Sedan Deville has just over 340,000 on it, but is now relegated to winter driving duties only, so I doubt if it'll get anywhere close to the 400K mark before it goes to the great caddy pasture in the sky,,,,,
