Visitor Tips and News About Muffler Man - Indian
A well maintained Indian Muffler Man is in front of "Richards of Toto" discount store and restaurant.[Alan Culley, 07/29/2012]
The Indian formerly stood at a now-closed amusement park, Enchanted Forest, up by Indiana's shoreline with Lake Michigan.
This Indian stands outside of Richard's Discount Store. They had a fire several years ago; when they rebuilt the Indian showed up. There are several types of discount stores in and around Toto. It's just a small hole in the wall, but if you are looking for something to do in Northern Indiana and you like discounts, then Toto is the place to go. A few miles south of Toto is Bailey's which is a huge discount store.[Kevin, 03/17/2008]
Toto... discount shopping...must go...
My family and I visited "Richards of Toto" discount store and restaurant for shopping and lunch and took this photo. It appears that the Indian has recently been painted as it is not quite as detailed as before.[Tom Hamann, 12/06/2007]
A shirtless Native American muffler man in downtown Toto, in parking lot of restaurant; nicely maintained, with warpaint, headband, and single feather; virtually identical (right arm raised) to one standing in Carrington, North Dakota.
In downtown Toto; Toto is a tiny town, halfway between Knox and North Judson, in Starke County, in northwest Indiana.[Keith Ryder, 09/01/2007]
The Muffler Man Indian that used to scare the living daylights out of me when I was 10 was located at a now defunct kiddie amusement park in Chesterton, Indiana (now a water park called Splash Down Dunes). I have a picture of my family standing in front of him. I remember freaking out having to stand so close to him for that pic. I recently discovered another Muffler Man Indian standing outside a bargain store in Toto, Indiana. I was proud to see that my 5 year old did not share the same terror of the big guy as she stood between his knees.[Michelle N., 08/14/2004]
