User 4TUN3_ tells the story of this repair: My Y pipe completely broke when I reached highway speed. I was lucky not to lose the whole exhaust system. The duct tape held for at least 25 kms before it melted away. The fan belt, however, would probably last longer than the normal exhaust suspension rubbers.
The way it's teared off makes me hope there was a little kid in the stall who thought this was some sort of gift and excitedly broke it open only to discover an IRL version of the crappy sharpie rendition.
"I had my double glazed window changed last month (water damage), but it wasn't installed right. Only 3 days later, a huge crack appeared. I immediately called the company that installed the window and they told me nothing could happen. But a new window will be installed soon. I don't trust huge cracks in my windows so duct tape to the rescue! I think it's kinda artsy!"
It DOES have a sort of abstract art quality to it. Keep it if you don't mind sacrificing the view!
