Swimmer Dude

Field review by the editors.

Unger, West Virginia

In 2005 George Farnham acquired a fiberglass eagle and this 26-foot-tall figure, a shirtless dude wearing swim trunks and sunglasses. The Swimmer is taller than a Muffler Man, and rarer as well.

His previous owners in Cincinnati named him Brian the Beach Boy, and sold him to the Farnhams because they wanted to buy a Muffler Man. The big swimmer now stands in the Farnham's yard, along with other fiberglass characters.
