Dude Man is still here! We were happy to see that his hands are still in the appropriate muffler-holding position.

The Gallup "Dude Man" is alive and well. I guess not technically alive, but certainly well.

I saw a muffler man in Gallup, New Mexico about two years ago. He can be seen from the main street going thru town (approximately 1/2 block from the main street). I'm from San Francisco so I can't give you any more details on the Gallup Tire Guy but I can tell you he bears a suspicious resemblance to the Tire Guy who use to be on Mission St. in SF until the late 70's.
