My response if probably dated but. Back in the 70's I had a ford Torino muscle car which experienced the same problem. Back then there was a "power pack" bolted to the fender next to the battery. It would get hot and stop running until it cooled off. Since I was in college, and broke much of the time, I carried a gallon jug of water in the trunk. When it killed, I poured the water over the pack, and I was good for another twenty miles.
