Is this normal?

A good friend of mine stopped by 2 days ago to pick up some brake parts. We got to talking about his truck.

Its a '97 Chevy 3/4 ton 2 wheel drive. Its got the Vortec V8 small block and auto tranny. He's now got 211,000 miles on it and NEVER had the tranny rebuilt. He does the "filter and flush" every 20,000 at the speedy oil change place for $75.

Is this tranny that good? Or is he just lucky? What tranny would be in it?

He pulls a small but very heavy trailer for his construction work. Just wondered why its lasting this long. Seems every newer car we buy looses the tranny at about 65,000!

Thanks,
Mark
