193k on the '92 Olds 88 we sold in the summer of '02. Still ran like brand new.
134k on the '93 Olds 88 we still have (it replaced the '92). Also still runs and looks like new.

Almost 171k. Had the tranny rebuilt about 10k miles or less ago and just got a used engine put in about 5k ago so Im not sure how long Ive got left on this car. I recently replaced the lower intake manifold gaskets, entire upper intake manifold and gaskets, starter, and soon to be water pump. Anything else that goes wrong should either be very minor and easily fixable or a nightmare causing me to take my own life.
