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.
