Default Great uncle broke the family'* mileage record!

The family'* previous record was 389k on a '66 Chevy Impala. He just broke the record today, hit 600k on his '69 Chevy truck with original 350, and on it'* second trans!!!!!!!!

It'* a regular pickup truck, he uses it to tool around in the field at their farm/work truck for lumber, etc, etc. He called us and a few others to tell us. BTW they live in IN, so yes..... they grow corn.
