Muffler Man - Bunyan.

Paul Bunyan

As of New Years Day 2019, Cheshire's Paul Bunyan stands proud and in excellent condition. He's in front of an indoor trampoline park as well as the House of Doors now, so the "House of Doors" sign has disappeared from his base. He's holding his classic American flag. Although rumor had it that another Paul Bunyan was lying behind the building, we checked and none was present.

When last reported in July, Bunyan 2 was laying on a trailer in a back storage area.

Muffler Man - Bunyan

As of 6/9/2012 this Muffler Man is standing tall and looks in great condition! He looks freshly painted and had his American flag in hand.

Christmas in Cheshire.

Muffler Men

Paul Bunyan was displaying holiday spirit when I paid my hometown muffler man a visit over the holidays. A wreath was hanging from his usual flagpole that he carries (he is designated as a flagpole to circumvent Cheshire's height ordinance). I learned he had a paint job recently. This one is always in excellent condition!

Muffler Man

I can happily report that in July of 2009 the Cheshire, Conn. Muffler Man is in outstanding condition. Looks like he has been refurbished to like-new condition. His stellar appearance is in rather stark contrast to the dilapidated house he stands in front of. He was also not holding a flag, so either the town has lightened up on their ordinance or the owners are flaunting the law.
