Cheap Exhaust Repair!

Good news! I have a Linear with a lot of miles on it. A couple of weeks ago the exhaust broke just aft of the resonator. It's a Texas car and isn't rusted or anything, just looks like it cracked. I was expecting to have to replace it from the cat back. I took it to a local one man shop and he said, "Nah, happens all the time." He put a sleeve on it and rewelded it. Good as new and only $30!
