Looks like one eye is going to survive after all. Turns out the reason why it snapped the timing belt was a bad harmonic balancer. Since half the damn engine needs to come off anyway to get at the timing belt, we decided to change the HB and keep it going for a bit longer.
This is a good thing since I'm not commiting on another car until I find out what my Texas fate is.
When the belt broke the car immediately stopped according to Annalisa. The car was towed to the shop and its being fixed. It hasn't fired since the belt broke, the mechanic said the valves weren't bent.
I don't know more beyond that, other than we were quoted a flat price to get things running again and its cheaper than buying another car, something I don't want to do at the moment.
