Wow, 277K miles on a Chevy Caprice?  I know the Caprice is a workhorse
for taxi cabs and police use, but 277K is amazing. Is it on the original
engine, trans, etc? Just curious as to how they compare with the
durability of the German marques. My experience is with an 82 caprice
diesel - that was a piece of crap - blew the head gasket at around 70K

Let's see now, 277K miles in about 9 years - that's 30K per year!
