Hello All,

Took the car in for front end alignment and car remains at facility. The tech drove the car into bay and returned it to the same spot that I drove into. Paid for work and was ready to drive home: when I got in the driver seat noticed the gear shifter was not in park position, but down in reverse "R". Tried to move it up to proper position to start and get out of there. Nothing doing could only get the shifter to go to drive "D", no further. Stormed back into the office and asked when were they planning on telling me the tech broke something on my car. Argruments and alot of finger pointing and I left the car for them to figure how they would like to handle the issue. The car is a 6200 series, 1963 has anyone else ever had this type of issue or know anyway that it can be resolved. I do know at some point I will have to assist them in getting the car taken care of. Any help will be gladly appreciated.
