Fo-evah dog! Naw, but I think if not abused too badly, I expect to get 100k+ miles. I'm all GM though, and if I had a rack of mods pushing mad powah, well what do ya expect. I think a STOCK lsj, well maintained can do it easily. JMO

I saw a 78ish Saab Turbo last year with 500K+ miles. I doubt it was ever totally rebuilt since it was rusty and most people won't spend major $ on high mileage cars.

Even my old piece of crap Mercury Topaz had like 125k on it and if I would ahve tried I could have kept it going a little longer, but I wanted a new car so I let it die peacefully

I think it'll go 100k if properly maintained (that means not running 2.7" on stock injectors)
