Muffler Men can be elusive. Check the Muffler Men Map for what we already have on your sighting.
The Muffler Man had been painted in a Steelers outfit -- now back to the "original" red and blue. Has been here for over 50 years, at least![Irene Egan, 10/12/2015]
We were able to get permission to get on the field and get some great shots of the Bangor Viking. There are only about nine roadside Viking statues that are left. They were made by International Fiberglass (the makers of Muffler Men) for the Viking Carpet company, and were used around the country to promote the company until it folded. Many of the Vikings like this one have ended up at schools. This one has faded paint and a number of large holes. He desperately needs restoration.[Joel Baker, 10/10/2015]
I visited this big guy and he is in good condition. Many thanks to the great people at Bud's Salvage for letting me get close to him, as he is hard to see from the road.[Dave Blake, 10/06/2015]

The Muffler Man in Rapid City is gone. It was sold to someone from Texas who already owns one. So he might pop up somewhere down there.[Robert Florey, 09/29/2015]

Although the business has changed, the Muffler Man still stands guard.[KW Baker, 09/25/2015]
