: 69 deville wont stay in park

well the transmission was supposedly rebuilt before i got the car, and it pops out of park sometimes, so i just use the parking brake. the question is should i take it to a mechanic, or a transmission shop? any ideas on cost or what could be wrong?

Tranny shop. Either the linkage is loose and it won't put the trans all the way into park or the pawl which keeps it in park is worn which, is very unusual.
