It is a heat shield/warm air hose that feed the air box in the winter. I 
usually throw the shield away, once the it rusts off the studs and starts to 
rattle. The hose just hangs there, next to the mfld, still doing its job.
I know, I know, it's neglegence bordering on vandalism, but the cars still 
start in January, so, who cares.
