The Muffler Man Cowboy is now roasting a wienie on a stick! This must be a seasonal thing?

[Bob K., 09/08/2023]

This cowboy holds a large candy cane at Christmastime, so a hot dog is summertime appropriate -- although he'll need to eat about a dozen of those.

Muffler Man: Cowboy

His paint job seems to be kept up, but his lariat made of "stinky slinkies" is no more.

[Rustin LaFurney, 08/06/2021]

The cowboy stands outside a mobile home park, and the lariat was fashioned from a handy RV sewage drain hose.
