Muffler Man - Kevin

He's a bit pale compared with other Muffler Man that we met along the way in Southern CA. The paint is slowly faded through the years.

Here is a recent view of the Van Nuys Muffler Man.

Muffler Man - "Kevin"

Made the trip out to visit the Van Nuys Muffler Man and discovered that, due to the semi-recent face-lift, he looks a little different from the photo shown on your web site. My wife asked the owner, Kevin, and found that the Van Nuys Guy's name is also "Kevin" due to the fact that Kevin, the owner, sort of looks like a Muffler Man himself. The new name of the business is Tune-Up Masters.

Van Nuys Muffler Man - Update

New tenants moved into the shop on Sherman Way. They decided to paint the building, and even painted the muffler man to match. It's painted clean shaven this time.
