Paul Bunyan Muffler Man - 1967

This is more of an interesting historical update. My mom recently passed away, and while going through some old family photo albums I found this photo from July 23, 1967, showing a "Paul Bunyan" MM on Flagstaff's main street (Hwy 66) in the parking lot of the Lumberjack Cafe. I have no idea if this is, in fact, the same MM that now lives on the campus of Northern Arizona University, but I think it stands to reason that it is since there are no other MM's in Flagstaff today.

If you look down the sidewalk, on the far side of the Lumberjack Cafe, you'll see the top half of another Bunyan Muffler Man! Seems logical to assume both these giants cut a swath to the stadium where Flagstaff's two Bunyans stand today.
