Muffler Man: Bunyan with a Wrench

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.

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.

When I saw this M-Man the other day, he had a wrench in his hands -- like the one in Zephyrhills.

Muffler Man - Paul Bunyan

New sighting! Paul Bunyan style Muffler Man found living next to muffler shop in Dade City, Florida. The highlight of my recent vacation to Florida came not in a visit to Disneyland or Sea World, but in a chance sighting of a Muffler Man! Special thanks to my sweetheart, who -- despite thinking it was ridiculous -- took the photos for me just after I locked up the brakes on the rental car.
