1986 Buick park aveune 647,000 kms or 409,000 miles, original engine, 5th transmission, 6 sets of tires.....still runs...i sold it and bought the Bonneville....the park ave leaked 4 quarts of oil a week till i fixed the pan seal then it was down to 1 quart the transmission leaked around a quart a week. Befor i sold it the tranny whinned in first gear and then went a away but still shifted abruptly. The engine had a constant knock that sped up as the RPMS climbed. The good thing is i never had to replace the Transmission it was my uncles befor and he took care of 3 Trannys were as the previous (original) owner only did 2. It had the factory auto level control that never worked cos the lines were detieriorated. but it STILL RUNS!! i work with the guy who i sold it to.

On my 1992 Bonneville SE (Ol' Blue Eyes Sr) I got rear-ended with 320,000 miles on the original motor and tranny, both of which had no problems and had been to the drag strip (1/8 mile) and made more than a few passes in the 10.3-.10.5 range @70-72 mph and these were done after 275,000 miles.
Personally, I'd have to say if you hit 200,000 miles with a Series II you are ahead of your class. Seams most Series II'* have had major motor or trany repairs/replacements by the time 130-150,000 rolls around.

Just keep up with the standard maintenance and don't run too hard too often and you could very well see 300,000 miles.
Congrats and good luck.
Keep us posted.
