Visitor Tips and News About Muffler Man
This Muffler Man, converted to a "golf guy," is currently AT RISK! The golf course has been removed and all landscaping, etc. is gone. He remains there alone, on the south side of the 405 freeway, just east of the interchange with the 110 freeway. Can anybody do something to save him?[Steve Gerdes, 03/30/2013]
The fact that he's still there after everything else was removed suggests that he may not be doomed, just heading elsewhere. The value of Muffler Men is usually recognized (ignoring the recent scrapping of the Pahrump giant). If this one is moved, we'll track him.
I am worried about this Muffler Man because the old golf course has been purchased for a different use. Please save the Muffler Man![Jim, 01/12/2013]
Muffler Men are surprisingly adaptable; for example, they were never created to hold golf clubs. If the new owners are creative they'll think of a way to tailor their Muffler Man to promote their business. He may have even been one of the reasons why they bought the property!
This is probably one of very few muffler men that regularly change clothes and paint. He's sported numerous distinct looks and outfits that seem to change very regularly. He's easy to see from the 405 (left when going north and right when going south) a short distance south of the 110.[Eric J., 05/17/2012]
The Carson golfer looks like he's ready for summer! He seems to be wearing a pair of red and blue striped swim trunks, with the Ocean Pacific logo on the lower left leg.[Kindra, 07/13/2010]
