Stopped by to see how our Muffler Man is doing. He looks to be in pretty good shape. It's really unbelievable how much stuff is crowded in the yard around his feet!

Wanted to let you know that Phoenix's only muffler man is doing well. Looks like he had had some damage to his right eye and nose.

This Bunyan was gone later in 2007 - moved to the cluttered yard collection of Don Parks

I took a different way home from work one day, and what did I see -- a muffler man! The interesting thing about this sighting is that I work for a lumber company, and one of our customers, Lumberjack Building Materials, is the owner of the statue. I called the customer and told them that they were famous and sent them the Smithsonian article. They looked on your web site and were very excited!

Anyway, the muffler man is a bearded lumberjack with an axe in his hand.
