Smiling Car Parts Man

On the west side of Columbus there is a watchful guardian over Broad St. Pretty funny little guy, standing in front of a tire store.

Smiling Man Made of Car Parts

A smiling man made of mufflers and exhaust pipes stands in front of the Tire Station in Columbus. The man has a lug nut wrench in his right hand, a large crescent wrench in his left hand, and he wears a black hat that appears to be part of a brake. He stands on two tire rims.
