My guess is that a year ago I had a bad transmission mount replaced, that  
had been bad for along time. It may have stressed the linkage.  Had a  rattle 
under hard acceleration that I assumed was exhaust.  Car has always  shifted 
fine until I was on the highway one day and went for 5th and kept  getting third. 
 When I stopped I could not get reverse either.
Drove for a day or two like that, if I throw the lever hard I could  
occasionally get fifth, no tranny noise but I could feel the linkage binding  up.  
After the car sat for a few days, I drove it again (got tired of  riding the 
motorcycle in the rain), and after starting the car it went right  into reverse 
and fifth.  Brought the car to Keith and Chris at Anderson  Motor Sports (great 
guys) and they replace a linkage fork from a parts car they  had on the lot.
Tranny linkage is a bit better feeling than before.
Got by cheep!
