Muffler Men can be elusive. Check the Muffler Men Map for what we already have on your sighting.
Big Roy is big -- really big! He now holds a branding iron in his hands, and there's now a picnic table, and a guest book to sign for visitors. My mother and I know Big Roy's owner personally, and he took us for a ride to visit this attraction.[Jann Schott, 03/20/2016]
We have a new fireman statue, just put him up today.
We have some statues out at the beauty shop still. It will be a couple month before they are all back.[Bruce Kennedy, 03/08/2016]
Bruce Kennedy asked Mark Cline to create the highly customized firefighter. It was shipped from Virginia to join Bruce's collection of Muffler Men and other fiberglass giants. Currently staged in the lot at Bell Plastics, a humongous, incendiary pepper seems to taunt the fireman.

We were visiting the Pahrump Valley Museum and saw this big broken statue in the outside display area. There wasn't any information about him and we didn't ask in the museum so I don't know how he ended up there. When I did a search I found the Big Friend on your site. Good news is he has been saved; bad news is he's in bad shape. It looks like the scrap yard scavenged his framework, so he may never stand again.[Karen, 03/05/2016]
The museum intends to keep him, and hopes to eventually restore his fiberglass damage, if they can get the funds. The current display is oddly satisfying -- as if a fairy tale giant has been eaten by monster birds.
Visited the Big White Guy statue on 2/19/2016, and it was behind the strip mall. Not sure if it's a temporary move or they're planning a relocation.[Tom, 02/19/2016]
The Longmont Muffler Man is alive and well and still guarding the yard![Cynthia Schulz, 02/16/2016]
