    These parts are hard to believe:
    "it now has over 1,000,000 miles on the original transmission."
    "I’ve never had the transmission pan off and have never replaced the transmission filter."
    "I change my oil approx every 10,000 miles. I have to add a quart of oil every full tank of gas so there is always some new oil in the pan. I just wait for it to go black before changing it. My longest period between oil changes was 55,000 miles"

    And take a look at the guy:

    According to his myspace he has the mileage pictures to prove it.

    I guess it's possible but it still seems fishy to me.

    Ask Mark O how the Ford transmissions are working out for him.
