I DID pay a lot for this muffler

Car is fixed. For now. It cost me twice what I expected to be paying. Actually, the muffler was relatively inexpensive, but still probably massively overpriced. It was the head pipe that was the most expensive part.

Well, if it cuts down on the amount of toxic gas I'm pumping into the inside of the car it will have been worth it. Still, I didn't expect to be putting this much money into the car in its final months. (The car just hit 247,000 miles yesterday. At 1000 miles every 17 days or so, that means only about 50 more days to 250,000. Which puts that milestone right around Christmas. Maybe Santa will bring me a new car?)
