My 451 full on destroyed its belt in the parking lot of my apartment a few years ago. Thankfully there was an auto shop a mile away and it made the journey without breaking a sweat. Pulled into the lot with the coolant temp at 170 degrees. That was a whole lotta nope!

Shame this car is so far away, otherwise I'd hitch up a car carrier to my Ranger and be out there stat!
