Giant Farmer

The clerk at the Mobil station said that the farmer's name is Pepper Jack. Like the cheese, maybe?

I thought the Farmer was pretty cool and worth the super-easy hop off of I-90. America doesn't make this kind of stuff anymore. The eyes alone are worth a look.

ID tag on the giant farmer says "Creative Displays, Inc Sparta Wisconsin." Now the station is a Mobil!

Strange Giant Farmer

Strange as ever, but now it's a BP station instead of an Amoco, and the farmer is holding a sausage instead of a beer.

Strange Giant Farmer -- NOT a Muffler Man

This guy is listed with the unidentified muffler men, though is most certainly not a real muffler man. Strange and funny looking, yes, but no muffler man. He's worth the stop if you are near the I90/I39 interchange, however. Just check out those eyes. . .creepy.
