Man Made of Mufflers Mailbox

Not your traditional "Muffler Man," but he IS made of mufflers. This stands on a rather busy street, so photos can be a bit tricky. Please use caution!

[Perfect Pair, 07/06/2013]

Crystal Lake has been home to two giant-size fiberglass Muffler Men. This metal pipsqueak is part of a proud but separate tradition of making people out of discarded car parts.
