Centralia, Washington: Auto Parts Man

Centralia's big-eared metal man is not only a spare parts sculpture, but also a handy sign for a muffler shop. He used to be in Chehalis.

Auto Parts Man.

Auto Parts Man

The man made of car mufflers stands tall on the corner of Main and Washington, although the sign that he holds is now empty and the muffler business appeared to be vacant. It was cool to see that he's still around after all these years!

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.
