The Clown statue.

Muffler Man Clown (In Transition)

Field review by the editors.

Dallas, Georgia

Type: Hard to say...

Arm position: Palms up

Accessories: Clown uniform

Nickname: Clown

This startling Grindhouse horror of a statue spent over 30 years in Magic Forest, a children's theme park in New York State. It is a Muffler Man, yes, but pushing the limits of what can be done with body modification and fiberglass surgery. The balloon pantaloons and propeller-size bowtie make it a one-of-a-kind Muffler Man, with no clown peer.

We first stumbled upon this clown in the middle of the Magic Forest, shaded by towering trees near the ice cream stand. According to information obtained by Joel Baker at American Giants, the Clown began life as a pirate in Ocean City, Maryland, and was converted into its current nightmarish configuration before Magic Forest bought him in 1987.

In 2018 the Clown was purchased by Mike Whitman in Dallas, Georgia, who plans to stand him next to his plumbing business -- although back from the road, he said, because he knows the Clown is "pretty freakin' weird."
