Sadsub, tough news on the transmission. I'm assuming you are not quite inclined to fix it yourself and that is why you are here? If it means anything to you, someone "out there" may be looking for a car like yours that they want to fix / swap in a good trans. You could join a legacy forum, NASIOC, or some others and see if someone will give you 500-1000 bucks for it. Saves a good car from the scrap (can't be undone legally most of the time) and makes someones day / year. Just a thought. Hope everything works out for you.
