Default What screw is this? HELP!

I found this screw under my 2002 Trans-Am Firehawk and have no idea where it goes. Luckily I didn't run it over with my tire. Not even sure if it belongs anywhere? What screw would be POINTED like this? It's confusing because I didn't think any bolts were pointed. Only other modification is the SLP Loudmouth exhaust. Nothing seems loose.

Seems to be 8mm with a triangle image on the head. A US Quarter and a banana-to-scale.

Recent modifications was a suspension upgrade to the SLP #70002 kit and a dealership "lubed the chassis" so I'm not sure if this would be related to that. It doesn't seem so. Could be just a rogue screw in my driveway on a windy day?

That might be one of the panhard brace bolts. Not the bar but the stamped brace that sets above it. Where it bolts into the chassis it has three bolts and I think they are pointed like that. There are actually a few bolts under the car that are pointed like that.

One of these, maybe? This is not my car and this is an aftermarket panhard bar.

WAY too small for that. Looks like one of those sheet metal screws for the exhaust heat shields near the fuel tank.
