Tree Removal - Day 1

We are getting rid of some trees in the back yard that have the potential of falling into the house and a stand of pines in the front to allow the dogwood trees to grow.

If the above slideshow doesn't show, the pictures can be found at

Youtube video of the cutting of the pines.

1988 Oldsmobile dangling part - What is it

I started hearing a rattling today as I was driving my beater - a 1989 Oldsmobile Royale 88. (yeah, I put the wrong year in the title above and I can't change it now)

When I got home, I found this thing hanging from underneath the right front part of the engine.

I will call my mechanic on Monday, but if anyone has any idea what this thing is, let me know

The bottom picture is sideways, but you can see the connection where this sucker broke off.
