Auto Parts Man

I live in Chehalis. I am sorry, but the muffler shop and Auto Parts Man are no longer there. It is now a carpet cleaning business.

Man made from car mufflers.

Auto Parts Man

While he's not a classic Muffler Man, it's still a pretty cool sign outside of a muffler shop. Looking a bit more like the Tinman, he's got nice feet made out of mufflers. And he looks pretty friendly, too.
