The Muffler Man is still there in August 2020. Everything is blocked off, though, so you have to park and walk to snap a picture.

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....

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.
