Cowboy Muffler Man

It's 2011 and the Cowboy Muffler Man is still riding high in the Rockies in the backyard of a private home, although it's quite easy to see from the road (66)!

His hat is looking a little tattered.

Muffler Man

He's still at the same ranch and easy to spot. Looks as though he took a tumble; his hat is crushed on one side.

Muffler Man

I live in Longmont, Colorado, about 5 miles from your Lyons Muffler Man. (We prefer to call him the Longmont Muffler Man.) My children have grown up next to this muffler man, and have frequently fed the ducks at his feet. Well, 30 yards down the road from him.

[Mark Laitos, 08/17/1997]

July 2003: Don Koharski updates: "He's still there-- the cowboy variety holding a custom-made pitchfork. The wind must be tough on him, because he's got about 6 different guy wires holding him in place. Presides over a hay farm."
