Windsor, South Carolina: Devilish Creature Made of Metal JunkA spring-headed rust demon fogs the minds of drivers to stop at an antiques shop.
- US Hwy 78, Windsor, SC
- On US 78 about 2.5 miles east of State House Rd (Windsor) and six miles west of Springfield Rd/Hwy 39 (Williston). On the westbound side, in front of a junk shop. SLOW DOWN. He blends in well with the weeds and brush and is hard to see if you aren't looking.
Visitor Tips and News About Devilish Creature Made of Metal Junk
The owner and creator of the junk man lives on the property and sells antiques as well as other collectibles, such as old chain gang balls, Civil War memorabilia and the like. Stop in and see Earl. He'll be glad.[Reese, 02/24/2013]
Although this strange oddity is still standing silently waving to all that pass; it seems that the Queen of Hearts is a roadie as well and has ordered "off with its head!"[Jennifer Gilmore, 03/28/2012]
Hmmm... not much worth slowing down for now....
This is not a "Muffler Man." Rather this is a "man" made from auto parts and the tank from a water heater. He stands on the north side of the road. Look carefully -- he's almost engulfed in weeds, etc.[Charlie Brown, 09/05/2006]
On Highway 78 between Williston and Aiken, there is an old, tumble-down junk shop in a shack on the RIGHT side of the road as you travel west toward Aiken. The yard is strewn with different kinds of automotive and domestic junk, including some pretty interesting classic cars, and I've never seen a living human being on the premises except those of us who stop to wander around the yard. On the highway, standing proudly with one arm raised, is a somewhat rusty but nevertheless recognizable MUFFLER MAN, sort of a bizarre, art deco type, that has been there as long as I can remember.[Frampton Durban, Jr., 02/07/2002]
Rusty? Hmmm... sounds like another car parts sculpture, not a fiberglass Muffer Man!
