Big George, The Muffler Man

Big George, The Muffler Man is gone! My wife and I went to visit him 9-5-11 on a Labor Day road trip and Big George was gone! A local told us Sterling McCall had auctioned him off a few years ago. So sad!

Muffler Man

This brawny he-man invites tourists to visit the car museum he stands next to. This suave stud was featured in the April 30, 2007 Zippy the Pinhead comic strip.

There is a classic muffler man in a little central TX town named Warrenton at a small car museum. The muffler man is outside, holding a sign.

Big George the Muffler Man

I thought I saw a Muffler Man here last weekend. However the person I was with would not slow down for further inspection. Round Top is in southern TX between Austin and Houston. It looks to be in very good condition. Any one else seen this one?
