Possible Headless (Alleged) Muffler Man

Not much to look at!

[Anthony, 08/02/2013]

Agreed. Sure doesn't appear to be parts of a Muffler Man. Looks like ballet dancer legs and some other body attachments. Someone needs to put this character back together!

(Alleged) Muffler Man in the Bronx

Driving north on the Major Deegan Expressway, right before exit 4 (Bronx Terminal Market), there is a muffler man lying down on a rooftop. Anyone else ever spot this guy? He might be missing his head; it's hard to tell.

It seems to be a fiberglass statue... would have to see it assembled to see if it has any Muffler Man lineage.
