    The one where they say "Most mechanics can fix about anything on your vichile, but throw a modern transmission at them" You see transmission flying through the air, the guy ducks, and the tranny puts a hole in the shop wall. I thought it was funny.

    Are they franchises? There was a shop near a high school and a cemetary near me that was pouring the used fluid into the ground. They actually had sinks that were plumbed out to a hole in the school parking lot and the cemetary.

    Did they try and pass off the used fluid as corpse leakage?

    Yes. I believe they claim to be the nations largest transmission shop chain....

    The first time I saw that one was right after we had spent hours wrestling my "new" SM465 into place the first time..... /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif

    While I find the commercial funny now, I wasn't laughing then. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I had my first tranny rebuilt by those fools when i was young and didn't know any better.
    After that experience I rebuild my own now. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    The AAMCO rebuild lasted something like 40,000 miles.
    I'll bet my rebuild job will last longer. I got almost 10K and counting.

    All I was saying was I thought the commercial was funny. The way they throw a transmission at the guy, how he had to duck, and the tranny go's through a wall.

    I've seen both versions of it. I like the one where the guy ducks best becouse he stands up after it go's through the wall. You should see the look on his face.
