Rock&Roll Firebird is on a distinguished road
Default Any idea what part is this...?

Hey guys, recently I was going on a highway with my '59 and suddenly I heard an iron sounding item that was rolling after me as I looked in the mirror. There was something I either ran over on the road or that fell off the car. It was a fairly big piece and it had quite a rolling speed as I looked back. Neither I felt any bump from the wheels at the moment, so I'm not sure if I actually ran over anything.

Anywas, attached are pictures of the piece that I collected on my way back. It was dark on my way back already so I even may have collected something different . On the road was nothing else that big though. And it's now two pieces because I suppose it may have been split by other cars hitting it on the road. Any idea if this piece has anything to do with the T-bird?

Looks like part of a catalytic converter. I doubt it has anything to do with your car.
