Visitor Tips and News About Big Roy, Muffler Man
Big Roy the Muffler Man
Big Roy is big -- really big! He now holds a branding iron in his hands, and there's now a picnic table, and a guest book to sign for visitors. My mother and I know Big Roy's owner personally, and he took us for a ride to visit this attraction.[Jann Schott, 03/20/2016]
What Roger neglected to mention is that "the big guy" is directly across the state highway from a working cattle ranch. The cowboy overlooks a loading chute and has caught the attention of many bovine residents.[Janne AKA favorite sis in law, 09/24/2009]
Here he is! The Hat Creek Muffler Man just erected. Freshly renovated and transformed into a cowboy; formerly a mechanic in Dunsmuir, CA. He's attracting lots of attention and will soon have a picnic table nearby for visitors to enjoy.[Roger Sleight, 06/07/2009]
