Will this thing ever die?

1993 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Series C1500 Silverado 2dr Extended Cab SB
The ol' girl turned over 311K today, and has never had major (4.3L Z engine) surgery. I've replaced bolt on parts, and had the manual tranny rebuilt, but this Chevy has just run and run. She left me stranded just once in the past 15 years when the fuel pump went. Original universal joints in the drive shaft! Pulled a 4000# camper many miles without complaint. The BIG problem was de-laminating paint. Was a problem, because the paint just ain't there anymore.
I really like the way this truck handles. I also appreciate the room under the hood for storage of jumper cables, tools, etc. It's pretty handy when you do remote camping.
Rear disk brakes. Oh, paint that actually sticks to the truck.
