Muffler Man - Gone

Sorry to report that the muffler man here on Route 87 isn't around any more. The nice woman that I spoke to at the Bee Line Cafe said he used to stand next to the El Rancho Restaurant but has been gone for years. "It's funny. It's one of those things that you don't really notice. I just realized one day he was GONE."

He looks like Paul Bunyan and has an axe in his hands.
