374,000 mile Toyota, original owner, and it has not been rebuilt (except replaced timing chain) even has the original alternator still working as planned

One new starter, one new timing chain because of the plastic guides that got brittle and broke (stupid idea that a lot of companies have used... morons. No plastic in the engine! Heat kills it!) one change of the spark plugs at 250,000... and that is about it. Remarkable.

I remember posting a true story about some woman who kept a car for decades, and kept track of all the replaced parts, number of batteries, number of mufflers, etc etc.. but this Toyota hasn't needed that long list of replacements.
