The hard goods are still just fine!
well at least I know I have one of the lesser evil cars

His point is that this one started out OK, until the monkeys came in and messed up the house.

The only things you could do to "blow" your transmission is stupidly do burnouts with the wheels turned hard, doing neutral drops, reverse drops, or doing massive burnouts at every light or stopsign. The engine will be much harder to kill, but can die if abused severely, such as bouncing off the rev limiter like ricers do, overreving the engine past redline, overheating the engine, running low on oil, etc.

Remember, we are not talking a weak *** Escort or Cavalier here, we are talking about a L67 and a HD transmission built to be abused, but not too much on a constant basis.
