Car Part Guessing Game

This is what fell off the bottom of my car last Friday, while I was 250 miles away from home.  Do you know what it is?

That thing that is partially hanging down - guess what it is.

Well, actually, it partially fell off, and was making a scraping noise when I drove the car around at the Old Folks’ Home.  Very early the next morning my brother got up and removed it from the car completely.  When I got up at 7:30 a.m., I found it on the back of the toilet tank in the bathroom where we were all staying. 

More on this in a few days.  Right now I’m still recovering from my aunt’s birthday party, which was a success, a visit from my son so he could find a paying summer job, which was not a success, and sending Younger Daughter off on the band trip.  Right at this very moment (Thursday at 6 p.m.) the band is marching in the parade.

Listen to me - I sound like Miss Auto Mechanic 2014 up there.

Let me be the first to say it: Suburban Correspondent is totally showing off.
And she's probably right.
What a rotten thing to have happen while on the road.

I have never even looked at the underside of a car. In fact, when the oil-change guys come out to show me some filter that needs changing? They could totally be fooling me --I wouldn't have a clue :-)

Looks like the carapace of a metallic bug. I'm such a greaser.
