Cowboy Muffler Man

Visited the Muffler Man in Calgary with a buddy and took some photos. He was cold, but standing tall and looking good.

Cowboy Muffler Man

There is a retired Phillips 66 Cowboy Muffler Man that has been hidden in Calgary for 15 years. In the late 1960s the owner of a mobile home business in Edmonton purchased the cowboy from a Phillips 66 station in the U.S. and moved him to Canada. It stood for many years at the mobile home business until it closed around 1999. The cowboy was then moved to the owner's farm -- until the farm was purchased by the Muffler Man's current owner. He had the cowboy restored and moved him to his business in Calgary where he has stood ever since.
