    It's hard to say, by sounds of it the clutch is completely gone, or its possible a gear selector fork has broken inside the gearbox.

    Your probably right it’s just very strange the car drove to my yard parked over night and something breaks, I went outside an hour ago put the car in reverse and revd it to 2k rpm and let the clutch out with the Revs high enough to hopefully bang it out of jammed gear and blue smoke came out of the top of the gearbox.
