Political Paulverizer.

Paulverizer: Cyborg Muffler Man

Disruption is relative. No complaint here.

Those unfamiliar with Paulverizer's backstory may mistakenly assume he's a representation of President 45. But we all know that Trump isn't steered by a little driver in his chest.

Really cool use of salvaged materials! This "guy" is top notch!

I wanted to stop here while passing through, but was disappointed to see a huge Trump campaign sign on the Muffler Man. I decided not to stop because it wouldn't be possible to take a photo without getting the sign in the photo. I wad disappointed that I went out of my way only to have the view obstructed by the sign.

Still standing and is in good shape.

This hybrid Muffler Man features an alien operator in its belly. Probably the most bizarre of Mark Cline's modern-day Muffler Men.
