    I have over 150K, it puffs a little smoke on startup, but runs great other than that.

    We have a '92 sub with a throttle body 350 in it with 340K miles. It still starts and runs just fine, the rest of it's pretty tired, rear end makes a little noise, etc, but it's still running strong.

    my 400 mouse outlived my 350 tranny, but since i unplug the speedo to keep the insurance and emissions down i'll never know. the speedo says 150k but that's about to me as useful as the spare tire on a ford focus.

    I just got a winch, it takes the fun out of things.

    I have a 350 with 230,000 ks and a 305 with over 300,000. The 305 smokes a bit at start up but is still a good runner.
