The Muffler Man at L.P. Anderson Tire Factory in Billings is in the opening shot of the movie Nebraska.

Haven't seen this 2013 film, but it involves a road trip from Montana to Nebraska, evidently with good sights along the way.

Muffler Man with Tire

Driving through Billings in the middle of the night, I came across this fella. He's holding a normal-size tire, but it looks like a toy in his ginormous hand.

Muffler Men are impressive (and hard to miss) even at night. A good find!
