Muffler Man

The Muffler Man is no longer here! I visited on March 24, 2023, and was told by an employee of Avengers Automotive that he was removed about two weeks before. He was purchased by someone who is taking him to Connecticut.

Muffler Man - 50th Street

The Muffler Man is located on a very busy corner, so you'll need to pull into their lot. The business has changed; it's now Avangers Auto Body Repairs.

The business behind the big mechanic is active again, and he looks amazing!! Orange shirt now rather than red; looks like he may have gotten a new paint job!
