NEED HELP!!! exhaust stupidity

may have just cause a big problem, i had some kind of pep boys special mufflers when i bought the car about a year ago, got bored with the crappy sound (worst than stock) and had a car cruise going to soon so i decided to take them off out of curiosity. Soaked them in wd40 but still broke 2 of the 4 bolts sounds pretty good but now i cant get the mufflers back on (because of the broken bolts) and the cruise is tomorrow, so i wanted to know is it ok to still drive with the mufflers off?

I doubt you still need help, but in case this comes up for anyone else, it will not hurt your car mechanically to drive it without mufflers. It will, however melt the plastic around the exhaust opening if you drive it that way long term.

You should be able to find replacement bolts easily at most auto parts stores or hardware stores as well.
