Smokin tranny

I was recently on about a 150 mile road trip in my 1981 Chevy PU when I noticed a cloud of smoke tailing me. So I pull over and pop the hood to find a more smoke. I looked under the truck and the majority of the under carage is lined with what I'm pretty sure is tranny fluid. About 45 minutes later the truck only goes about 35 mph. Does anyone know what the heck happened?

You probably overheated the transmission and it puked fluid out of the front seal.

Unless you added fluid after you stopped to check it out the transmission is more than likely toasted.

Time for jam and PB.
