The heat shield or whatever it's called on the outside of your
catalytic converter is probably loose, makes a nice clanging noise on
acceleration/deceleration.

Had this happen once to an Escort, and it was nothing two large hose
clamps daisy-chained together couldn't quiet down. Probably going on
eight years now, they're still there on the original cat.
