I was constantly having to train the guys behind the counter. Drove me up a wall. I finally just started asking for the manager at one outfit when I told the kid I needed a part for my 69 GTO. He replied, "Is that made by Ford?"I literally did that back in the day! Guy kept telling my buddy he couldn't find a rebuilt kit for a Holly. Now this was like 40 years ago, but as I recall this as an 1850, the worlds most popular Holly. So I drove in. Guy was actually pretty cool when I asked him if I could use his book (no computers back then).
Course he about Sh*t when I flipped through them and then told him what kit to order.
