Twisted Guy - Not a Muffler Man

I was reading about the Muffler Men and realized I have a photo of the one from Norcross, Georgia that Kim mentioned. The photo was taken on 11-23-97. I don't think he's a muffler man, more of a homemade version. He stands in front of a salvage yard.

Nate Etheridge sent some 2002 pix of the deformed giant hillbilly. An American flag appears to be stuck to his face.

Not a Muffler Man

I don't know whether he would qualify as a true muffler man, but "Chaz" located on Buford Hwy (SR 13) in Norcross, Georgia, appears to be a muffler man gone to seed (the height is right but the proportions are a little off). With his beer belly, you might consider him a "redneck" muffler man.
