Cadet (Kadet) Muffler Man

Cadet (Kadet) Muffler Man
Kittanning, generic Pennsylvania

This muffler man may very well have begun my fascination for “big & tacky”.
 
My Grandmother lived not far from him in Ford Cliff, Pennsylvania — and as a child, passing him meant that the 4 hour trip was almost over. He stands in front of the Cadet Restaurant near Kittanning. (I believe that it was spelled “The Kadet” when I was little).
 
I detoured to find him on the way back from a biz trip to Butler last week. As you can see, it was snowing up a storm that day.
