Lumberjack Muffler Men

Parking lot closed for construction, so you need to park and walk.

Lumberjack Muffler Man

The Lumberjack outside of the Walkup Skydome in Flagstaff, Arizona was the victim of beer-soaked pranksters in February, 2004. I guess they cut him down by his ankles and beheaded him.

Two Lumberjacks

There are two lumberjack muffler men -- one inside and one outside the Walkup Skydome stadium at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff. (NAU's sports teams are nicknamed, curiously enough, the Lumberjacks). I have heard that both lumberjacks previously stood in front of The Lumberjack Cafe, which is now Granny's Closet, on Route 66 in Flagstaff.

[Martin Ince, 10/13/1997]

Tipster Norm Richie comments: "We never called it a Muffler Man, but the one pictured for Tucson is a dead ringer for the one that sat in front of the Lumberjack Cafe in Flagstaff, AZ for years in the '60s." And "Crissy" writes: "My friends in Flagstaff explained to me that the college kids steal the axe from one of the muffler men every year as a prank of some sort."
