Muffler Man: Bob the Big Man

Field review by the editors.

Briercrest, Saskatchewan

Type: Classic (20 ft. tall)

Arm position: Standard

Accessories: None

Classic clean-shaven Muffler Man wears a red shirt and blue pants. His right arm droops, the result of damage and surgical reattachment. Goes by the names "Bob" and "The Big Man."

He was discovered, smashed and broken, in a junkyard by Gord Gadd, who owned an auto body shop on the Saskatchewan prairie. Gord realized that the Muffler Man would make a good landmark for his business, visible for miles. Gord repaired the Muffler Man and stood him in a field south of the shop in the 1990s, where he's been ever since.
