I didn't hear back from the shop for quite some time. I finally did the thing that would guarantee a call: I went back to bed.

And then trudged back up to look at what he'd found. The catalytic converter hangs down a little lower than the engine, and every time I've bottomed out the car, I've been hitting its lower flange.

Eventually, this has caused a weld further downstream to completely crack.

He could replace it for $1,100, but suggested I find a muffler shop to weld it. I'll hopefully get on that tomorrow.

    I've added a significant chunk of new songs. Granted, quite a few are from "Kiss Me, Kate", but hey. Take a look. There are a few very old requests…

  • A Fair Chunk
