Video of Esprit V8 Overheat

Wanted to get an opinion from the forum if overheating an Esprit V8(Year 2000, 57K miles) could cause damage. I appreciate any feedback anyone can provide.

What's up with that oil? Ewww...a simple overheat would not cause it to be thick...oil usually sees much higher temps than coolant.

You should post this up in the Esprit section here.
