Exhaust problems

Hi everyone just registered been looking at the forum for awhile. I have a problem and I do not want to take it to a dealership unless I have to. I have an 04 gto that I got back in January it has a little over 1700 miles on it. When I drive it for awhile I get black dust on the back end from rear wheel to reae wheel. I don't think it is brake dust because it is not on the wheels. Does any one know what is causing this?

If you've got black dust all over the back of your car (and it's not vaporized mustang) I'd say you have a problem. I would take it to a dealer to have a look at.
