One valve down. Is it safe to drive ? (for a while ...).

	Hi all,
	my timing belt broke and just replaced it. The guy at the station
says it is driveable (for a while, untill I replace the valve).
	What is the net-wisdom on that ?
	Since this is the only car I have, I need it, even for small distance
(1-2 miles a day). Is it safe untill I get it back in for repair ?
	What am I looking at for the valve ($$) ?

	Oh, the car is a 5000CS turbo '86.
	Yes I really feel stupid for not checking earlier ...
