    It was actually a dealer that beat it and blew the trans. And then offloaded through action without disclosing blown trans. $7k range, so not cheap but cheapest in the area

    I would think a 'vette that's been abused was a recovered stolen one.

    Will be going to a body shop next week to pull the frame. Removing trans/diff/torque tube for more space to work with. Turned out trans was already drained, therefore it is probably shot as I have been driving it around and flat towed it in neutral.

    Almost everything is out.
    Someone left "I have been here" mark on the shifter

    Looks like a classic attempt at burning rubber and burning clutch instead. And the only reason for trans being shot is being dragged/driven with no fluid. The person that drained it and left it empty caused more damage that it had before he touched it.

    I might have been wrong. Something did let go in the trans. Will finish the tear down later as need to prep the Vette it self for a tow to a body shop on tuesday.

    There was a bit of sketchy puller rigging happening. This also might be leaning towards a part out, but I found the issue with the transmission. Input bearing fell apart. Finding the right bearing turned out not to be that easy.

    Well, now that I have it halfway apart and parts selling. I disagree with couple of shops that I took it to. The main frame rail is not kinked. Just the support piece. I think they probably could have pulled it. But too far in to the part out stage at this point.
    On the bright side, I finally got a full set of brakes to put on my TA. And a set of wheels for the El Camino. And maybe ls3 long block for the TA. And maybe a set of seats for the Camaro. And TA brakes to go for El Camino
