La Salsa Muffler Man

La Salsa Man is located just north of the beer distillery and SMH Consultants. He was there January 28, 2019.

[James Smith, 02/03/2019]

His upper body vanished last summer, but only temporarily for repairs. He's a whole Salsa Man again.

Went to see La Salsa Man this morning -- and only found his pants!

[Marybeth Mueller Gardner, 08/18/2018]

We've spoken with the La Salsa Man authorities in Dodge City. They assured us that his top half is not missing, but out for repairs. He should be a whole Man again soon, but they couldn't provide a definite date.

Thought this was the coolest one. Sammy Salsa I think it's called -- a Muffler Man in Dodge City.

La Salsa Man

Maybe not so permanent as advertised. Went to see La Salsa Man at his latest advertised location and he's not there! Instead there's a row of shiny new fast food joints. Did some research and found a newspaper article from July, 2017 suggesting he'd be installed on 3rd by the SMH Consultants building, alas, no Salsa Man and his friend is missing as well! Salsa Man got outta Dodge!?
