Homer the Muffler Man - For Sale

We're seeking a new home for Homer the Muffler Man. We're selling him because we have sold the business, and the buyer doesn't want him. Our asking price is $6,000.

He's in very good condition, a 14-ft. version of the classic Muffler Man, created by Mark Cline. His accessories include a large baseball, golf club, and a baseball cap. There is a paint chip on his chin (not a hole) about the size of a quarter.

Homer the Muffler Man

This original muffler man, created by local artist Mark Cline from Natural Bridge Virginia, stands 14 ft tall. He wears a red baseball hat and holds a baseball in one hand and a golf putter in the other.

We are currently holding a contest to name him, but the front runner name is "Homer." Homer will welcome you to Bedford if arriving from the south on 122, and invite you to play a round of mini golf or hit a few balls if arriving from the north on 122.

Bedford Mini Golf & Batting Zone has recently reopened after extensive renovations and under new ownership.
