The Muffler Man is in good shape. He still has his custom belt buckle and shirt patch, but his jeans are now dark blue.

The Muffler Man is still at Cash for Gold location. Holds a miner's pick. In honor of nearby Sturgis, he sports a Harley Davidson belt buckle and shirt patch (Sturgis now has its own muffler man).

The muffler man is still in situ, south of Rapid City. Nicely painted with a Harley Davidson belt buckle. The gold panner appears to have moved a couple of miles and is now located about 20 metres from the muffler man.
