Fiberglass Paul Bunyan. One-armed, the stump hidden behind the sign. Then the other arm was gone; since replaced.

Nothing new, he looks awesome!

The one-armed Paul Bunyan in BP livery looked down on our charter bus -- we were returning from Salem, Massachusetts, to Kentucky -- as we sat for eight hours, broken-down and blocking the pumps, on Halloween Day 2021. You can't make this stuff up.

Excited to report that the Paul Bunyan has had his arm repaired! I am a local so I can verify that the repair happened in late December 2018. The repair is seamless but his paint job is still a little dirty -- perhaps that's a future project?

Paul's left arm was accidentally amputated by a truck in 2007. His right arm was stolen decades ago and has never been returned.

The Elmsford Muffler Man remains. If nothing else, the change in gas prices on his sign over the years is interesting.
