My 87 has 259,058 miles on it right now. Sadly she died at that mileage and I put her in the shed.

2 good trannies eh? pretty valuable find! how much did they charge for them? I'm thinking I might be in need of one veeery soon. Mine gives me this loud bang whenever I shift it into reverse... otherwise it'* fine for now.
