Found a Muffler Man while travelling through East Point, ask Georgia. He is in front of a Tire Pro store. Instead of holding a muffler, diagnosis he is holding a tire.

Kudos to Boyd & Sons for taking care of this great big guy. Nothing makes my day like adding a new Muffler Man to the collection. Thanks, Bill!

    crazy eyes AND levitating!

    He’s like a magic muffler man!

  2. We have a muffler man that looks like Alfred E. Newman on our list of things to check out on our big road trip – if I could only remember what state he’s in! I’m thinking Beaumont TX. Time to hit the maps anyways- we leave tomorrow!

    He looks like the lumberjack statue outside the Skydome at Northern Arizona University. Is that where this came from?

      No, but probably the same manufacturer. Many were produced decades ago for businesses to use for advertisement. The Paul Bunyan models generally held mufflers, tires, or other items in place of an axe.

      Over the decades, some were restored and moved to various locations. The one at Northern Arizona University most likey once stood at a business along Route 66.

    Yes, what some people call the Muffler Man, with a tire on his hand. Nice. Did it have to be bolted on the hand? Surely, it did. Way too dangerous to just let it rest there?
