Muffler Man: Bunyan with a Wrench

Quick stop while in Dade City. Got a few strange looks from the people working, but smiled and waved as I took pictures. It has a cute smaller exhaust parts statue out front.

The feet on the Dade City Muffler Man are broken.

The Muffler Man fell face-down during Hurricane Irma in September 2017, and his foot broke under his weight. It took the shop a few months to get him standing again. Until then, we locals joked he was doing push-ups.

The upper part of the Bunyan-with-a-Wrench is in good shape, although the front part of his right foot is missing.

[Thomas Brooks, 07/16/2019]

The front parts of both of this Muffler Man's feet appear to have been crushed, perhaps during a car parking mishap.

We spotted this Muffler Man on the way to the Kumquat Fest in Dade City. The business also has a small auto parts man standing near a car lift.
