Muffler Man

Way down a rocky back road, the Muffler Man sits far back on private property. I caught a glimpse of him through the trees, but couldn't get a picture.

Muffler Man - A Mr. Bendo

Ralph Potter at Ralph's Muffler in Indianapolis owned three Mr. Bendo-style Muffler Men figures. He was only able to set up one because of local sign ordinance laws. The other two giants remained in storage until American Giants purchased them in 2012 and 2015 respectively. This one was sold to Stone's Last Resort in August 2016. It stands on a concrete platform at the entrance to the property.
