Well I was in autozone the other day. One of the guys behind the counter asked me what kind of car I had, since I said it was a unique car. I told him the usual "86 pontiac fiero gt". He then told me after he laughed saying "No thats not unique at all" I asked him if he knew of any other mid engine american sports cars. He ignored that then said "now the 84 and 85's those are unique since they have a lifetime transferable warranty on the motor" I said "yeah okay" and left since I am pretty sure that is BS. Anyone else hear about that mythical warranty? To me it sounds like a unicorn. It would be wicked to have, but its never gonna happen for obvious reasons.
He's thinking about the recalls. I think all of the 84 engines were eligible for replacement. (Nobody shoot me if I'm wrong. K?) Recalls "technically" are good forever. Of course, after the bankruptcy, I suspect that they can tell everyone to go and pound sand. (Not sure. Just a guess.) But to stretch that into a "lifetime warranty"? I wan't some of what he's smoking.

Yeah thats what I thought too and I even went in today to pick up a few other parts and asked him if he meant the recall but he said "Nope I meant and said warranty" lol I decided not to be an ass and ask him if there was anything like that for my brothers 67 oldsmobile toronado haha

around my area there is a autozone just about a mile and a half from my house so i used to go there, but after finding out that everyone there has no idea what their talking about (not even about brakes lol), i decided to drive another ten miles down the road every time to napa or oreilly's, with much better service

Nice Stu lol I bet he would have just looked at me really confused after the computer didn't turn anything up. Yeah I go to napa when I can unless the very attractive woman is working when I go into autozone for a price check (Theres about a fifty dollar difference on the price of a fuel pressure regulator at napa and autozone which I do love napa and am willing to pay a couple of extra bucks for the service but not fifty lol at that much id expect them to wash my car for my business)
