Muffler Man is still lookin' good, but looks like he's missing his muffler.

The Wynnewood Muffler Man has been repaired since he was blown off the roof and dismantled by a storm in 2011. Now secured by steel cables and anchored to a cement slab on the ground.

Pieces of a Muffler Man. Muffler Man - Smashed!

I was a bit surprised when I stopped to see the Wynnewood cowboy to find him missing from his container. Furthermore his container was completely smashed by the fallen sign advertising the western wear store. Inside they told me a bad windstorm had come through in mid-December and knocked the sign down, which hit him on its way. and they found him in 3 pieces on the ground the following morning.

He is being repaired in either Nebraska or Oklahoma City (the lady there wasn't sure which) and will return hopefully by this coming summer. I was able to take some pictures of him before he ships north.

I first saw this Cowboy Muffler Man two years ago, easily visible from Interstate 35, near the town of Wynnewood. I committed myself to find it the next time my travels took me up I-35. And there he was, in splendid condition.

This is a muffler man cowboy at Steppin' Out Western Wear. Steppin' Out owner Harold Marcum says he bought the cowboy from an individual who leased it to the film company that produced the movie Twister. Marcum says the cowboy (approx 22 ft tall) was placed in a pond at Garvin County Lake for a scene in the film that was not used in the final production.
