Pickups are truly amazing in terms of longevity.  I heard that one of the 
reasons that Toyota was never really able to make inroads in the large 
pickup market is that the average service life of a Ford or Chevy is 
200-250K miles.  Pushrod V8s are one of those things that are too simple to 
fail.  I also read about the rush on Lincoln Town Cars when NYC changed its 
taxi rules  (grandfathering them in) - those apparently can do 250K in 
Manhattan traffic before needing a rebuild.
