Gemini Giant.

Gemini Giant: Space Age Muffler Man

This Muffler Man seems a bit rough, the paint a bit cracked here and there, but other than that still in good shape! The restaurant (Launching Pad) is closed and for sale.

The Gemini Giant and the Launching Pad Restaurant will be going to auction on April 8, 2016. This is a sad time for the people of Wilmington who hope so much for a miracle!
