Could be many things with what you have described. Does the car move at all when in gear? Does it make a huge CLUNK-CLUNK when accelerating and decelerating?

Will you be doing the work yourself or have a shop do it?

Doesn't move at all.......I will be doing it myself....it sounds like maybe that rubber on the clutch disk went out.......have you ever experienced that?

If the rubber center failed there are still three metal "safety tabs" that allow the car to still be driveable in the event of a broken rubber center. It is possible you sheared the tabs as well (could be the grinding noise?).

When my rubber-centered clutch failed I drove it on the safety ears for about 500 miles. Maybe I got lucky. I've seen rubber centers fail and the metal ears shear in less than 100 miles after. It's a gamble and just meant to get you home.

My best suggestion would be to get it to someone who can get your car on a rack and inspect it. Or you can get a few jack stands and start pricing a spring-centered clutch kit

It's something in the clutch.....do you have to pull the transmission?

Basically...

http://www.clarks-garage.com/shop-manual/clutch-01.htm

That will just about cover everything for a clutch replacement.

I drove on the tabs for about a year

Sounds as if something around that area is falling apart ( grinding noise ).

have you gotten up under it yet to take a look ??

Yep,ended up being the spline shaft going into the clutch disk wore down and it was just grinding instead of turning.......does anyone have any knowledge of getting the shaft out of that tube?

You may be better off just purchasing a new used torque tube if the splines are shot. How bad are the clutch splines? You may want to install a new clutch while you have it apart.
