I had results like that once, though on a Saginaw 4 speed tranny in a '76 Camaro. Nothing to do by not changing the oil, though. Blew out the side of the tranny and the biggest part I found was about of third of 1st and 2nd gears with 1st gear's teeth completely shreaded.

Something to do with a heavy foot, popping the clutch, burning tires and a curb. Yep, young and dumb.

Minor damage... all it needs is a light hone, and new rings and it will be good as new.

Am I understanding this right though? She drove that into your shop like that? Thrown rod, bearing caps falling out, and pretty much 0 oil?

BEAST.

no she pulled off the highway and shut it off and had it towed to my shop, but that would have been amazing if she had
