Muffler Man.

Muffler Man

This Muffler Man is now sporting a green shirt with blue jeans and a yellow hard hat. He is near Jackson, CA on 88 and Ridge. He seems shorter than other Muffler Men that we have seen. I wish I could have measured him before I drove off.

Muffler Man

You've seen one, you've seen them all? HECK NO The Muffler Men may not be a national monument (yet) but how many times have you given directions and told someone to turn left at the big green Muffler Man on the corner? No? Then keep your eyes open, they're THERE!

Bunyan Muffler Man

On the way through this small town to a favorite fishing spot I spotted a muffler man. He's about 25 feet tall and looks kind of like Paul Bunyan. His hands are in the classic tell-tale muffler man position. He has a red shirt and jeans on, but wields nothing with his mighty muffler arms. He also has a bushy brown beard. He is not a particullarily impressive muffler man; nonetheless I was ecstatic that I found one.
