Visitor Tips and News About Muffler Man - Indian
Not quite sure why this is referred to as "the muffler man." The local high school mascot is the Indian. They just look at this as a tribute to the school. The Indian is standing proud, and in good condition in the parking lot of Sad Sam's Fireworks.[Cathy, 09/28/2012]
Across the street from the Pink Elephant with the Martini Glass is a well maintained Giant Indian. His hand is out in a salute. I drove my car under him and it appears he is blessing my car!
It is at a gas station across the street from the abandoned antique mall and unloved Pink Elephant. Quite the contrast between the two![Erik, 08/10/2011]
He's looking great, even at night. He's huge![Buzz, 02/03/2010]
Passed through Cross Plains, Tennessee, and my family and I am happy to report that the Indian Muffler Man has been repaired and looks great. A cashier at Sad Sam's said he was fixed about 3 months ago following a storm. His arm was broken off and stolen. However, he now has a new arm, plus what appears to be a new paint job. He is no longer on a high concrete block, but is standing on the ground and surrounded by a knee-high metal fence.[Chris Kee, 07/23/2009]
The Muffler Man Indian is no longer there. He broke off at the legs and fell. As of 2/18/09 they removed him from the site.[Kristine, 02/19/2009]
March 2009: We've been told that the Indian was blown over in a storm, and that repairs will be underway once molds and moldmakers are found. Unfortunately, while he was down someone stole the "broken off upright arm."
