Bunyan Muffler Man.

Muffler Man - Bunyan

Field review by the editors.

Phoenix, Arizona

Type: Bunyan

Arm position: Standard

Accessories: Double-bladed ax

The Paul Bunyan Muffler Man towers in a suburban neighborhood, behind a fence in a private yard crowded with smaller fiberglass figures. Homeowner Don Parks acquired the 20-ft. tall lumberjack in 2007, after its former home at Lumberjack Building Materials on Broadway closed.

Don Parks is an avid collector of commercial promotional statues, and though he sells some he seems to always add even more (expanded to the yard of a home he bought across the street in 2012).

The Muffler man wields a double-bladed ax.
