Fortunately for me the mechanic is going to pay for all damages and fix my baby. It was a honest mistake and he has been really great about fixing it. I'm not sure of the extent of the damages but we are hoping the pistons are gonna be ok.
So unfortunately my car is down and out and once I get it back ill have to put it away for the winter. : (

It really sucks, I miss driving it.

Damn! well, hopefully the damage will be covered by the shop who did the belt replacement since it was their mistake?
