Very cool dude. Almost fell in the snow trying to get down and take a picture with him.

You can see him from the road. But not really anything to jump out of the car for....

... and pose in a photo and lovingly craft the image to evoke the magical wonder of the Muffler Men.

The Cowboy Muffler Man on Highway 63 in Spooner is still standing in front of Bulik's Amusements. He has been repainted with a red shirt.

Muffler Man - Cowboy

We saw this Muffler Man statue in 2006 at the edge of a Go-Kart area. Didn't look like the Go-Kart place was doing so well...so not sure if he's still there or not...but he was pretty darn cool and in very good shape at the time.

Muffler Man - Giant Cowboy Guy

During the last thirty years in Spooner, WI, Giant Cowboy Guy has been spotted in various locations. I first remember seeing him selling tires at a local gas station. He disappeared for a while, but can now be seen at a go-cart/waterslide park on Hwy 63 just north of downtown Spooner. I come up to his knee, so he must be about 18-20 feet tall. I saw him there just a couple of weeks ago.
