HVAC Duct Tin Man

The silver guy is standing tall near the front door of Merz Heating and Air Conditioning. He may have gotten a new hat; it's now painted red. His disproportionate shoulders make him look like a lineman for the Chicago Bears -- or maybe he's making a 1990s fashion statement.

He could also be compared to a grapefruit diet version of Elektro the Robot in Ohio.
