It sure seems like a cheap bucket of parts at the very least.
You also have to wonder if the transmission is really toast. 125K is  
pretty young.

I say that because I recently found a relatively new Imac on  
craigslist for $25 because the owner was told the main logic board was  
bad, and the cost of repair was so close to a new unit that she may as  
well scrap it - which she did.  It turned out that the logic board was  
fine, but the power supply was dead.  A much more common problem, and  
also fairly cheap to fix.  Me being me and all, I just hooked up an  
external power supply and now have a fully functional Imac for $25.

If only I had space and time....
