Spock on the move.

Muffler Man - Spock

Muffler Man Mr. Spock is in the move! No longer in Utah. Destination unknown.

[Josh Fisher, 01/26/2023]

Restoration work will soon be underway in Colorado.

Muffler Mr Spock

The Mr Spock Muffler Man is a little awkward to see from 3900 South, but that appears to be the only access. Signage on buildings immediately to the west have gotten taller and he's set back on buildings not directly on 3900 South. The alleyway is not a public access road but belongs to Rainbow Sign Company, to access their shop on the back of the property. If you stop on 3900 South (watch out, it's a busy road) immediately east of the property you can see it down the alley on top of a building.

Spock Muffler man.

Muffler Mr. Spock

Spock's pants have been found, suspiciously near a sexy babe bursting out of her fat suit. The Rainbow Neon Sign company has much cool old stuff. (The sexy lady was from a weight loss clinic in the area.). The company's sign slowly spins to help catch the eye of the passerby.

Spotted: Muffler Mr. Spock (maybe torso only), anchored to the roof of a signage company. Who knows what the future has in store for our dear Muffler Mr. Spock? Whatever it is, may he indeed "live long and prosper."

The half-a-Muffler-Man has been mounted to the sign company's roof since at least 2007. The Spock transformation is a recent upgrade.
