I got a mate telling me this story of how his car died because the timing belt failed. Something ceased causing the teeth to rip off the belt. He then reckons his stereo volume turned down, and the music from the CD player slowed, like slowing down a tape. He was obviously referring to his alternator failing, but I never knew it was possible to slow down the speed of a spinning CD to make the sound also slow. I reckon he's full of shit, but I can't find any cases of this happening before.
