Subject: My cousins car died!

Greetings everybody,
     A little while ago, my cousin came over to see my TC run.  After 
running it, we decided to go somewhere, on the way there, we noticed all of 
his idiot lights (check engine, oil, gas, door ajar, etc) were lit.  A day 
or so later his car died.  When he took it to get it fixed, the alternator 
was fried.  A mechanic friend of his, said that perhaps the EMFs from the 
coil fried the diodes in the alternator, he says only newer cars have them, 
and my cousins car seems to be the only car that has experienced this 
behavior, when parked near a running coil.  What do you guys think?  Thanks.
Scott Bogard.
P.S.  Despite the cost of fixing the car, my cousin is not at all mad, he 
said himself, that no other car he drove there has died in this manner, but 
he is parking farther away next time, just in case!
