Who else still has the original cooling system?

I feel like I'm definitely one of the few at this point.. It's a 1999 with 113k miles..

So the only thing I've done is flush my coolant at 50k miles, and I did the fuel filter at the same time.

I bought a new water pump and thermostat before I hit 100k, expecting them to die swiftly since my car is such an early build date.

This morning, my 'check coolant' light popped on for the first time ever. It went off after about a minute and did that twice on my way to work. I dropped it off at the shop and had them do a pressure test and leak check, expecting the expansion tank to have a nasty crack or something, and I was ready to go ahead and do everything.

To my amazement, there were no leaks and no seepage. Since there's nothing going on, I can't get myself to do any of it yet.

So I have to wonder, is anyone else doing just fine in the coolant department? Should I still be worried even though it all seems dandy?
