I wonder how the removal of the cat will effect future registration?

Here in the US, it depends on the state in which registered. Worst case, pick up a replacement from Walker Exhaust.

The odometer showing 35,000 miles as against the condition of certain parts of the vehicle is not indicative of a 35,000 mile vehicle.

This vehicle has been driven well over 100,000 miles.   The close-up pictures show a lot of wear in areas that should still be pristine.

Plus, what is that horrible contraption that is connecting the engine pipes to the tail pipe?

It seems that he either purchased the car with the sole intention of flipping it, or something was wrong with it and he's looking to dump it. He's only had it for 6 months?  ???

He's a flipper. That car has had a HARD salt belt life. WAYYYY too many things worn out.
Bruce, that ugly exhaust  thing is stock. The cat bolted directly to it.

And a lot of misc. leaks that were wiped down prior to pictures. That's what preserved some of the undercarriage. Crusty Leaky Money Pit.....
