update on my car

My mechanic reports that the intake (not exhaust) valve and seat dropped
into the cylinder, getting flattened by the piston.  Good news is piston
is OK, bad news is the head is shot.  If you've got a 4000q head lying
around, let me know.

He also says the head looks like it was a reman of some sort,
since there is some strange stamping on it he's never seen.
His theory is that the head overheated at some point
before I got it, which loosened the seat.
