Try photo-shoping an arrow onto the pic so you can identify which wire you are talking about

I say either part of the E brake or a broken off ground wire. Larry

That looks to be a ground wire that attaches to the lower frame rail, drivers side near the evap line bracket.
Trace the wire back to its origin, it should attach to the trans bolt near the starter.

I'm pretty sure that's the e-brake cable that's broken off.

I think OleJoeDad is right. I have one that looks about like that, except it's attached to the frame rail and pulled loose from the transmission. You can see one end bolted to the frame rail and the other end near the exhaust down pipe, in this pic.
