Uncle Sam head.

Muffler Man: Happy Halfwit Hollywood

They switched off the head on this guy! No longer a Happy Half wit, he's a muffler man now.

[CS, 01/08/2016]

A seasonal modification. While it may be true that the head makes the man, we suspect it will eventually be restored to its Halfwit configuration.

Muffler Man - Halfwit

Tired of the snow and cold, the Hollywood Halfwit of Flint, Michigan is heading for sunny California. He is planning a tour of the States for a couple weeks before moving into his new home at Bell Plastics in Hayward, CA.

[Bruce Kennedy, 01/24/2014]

Bruce has amassed an ominous concentration of Muffler Men next to his San Francisco-area business.

Muffler Man

Muffler man converted to Alfred E. Newman is at the abandoned Dort Mall in Flint.

[Todd, 09/08/2013]

The Alfred E. Neuman "Happy Half-Wit" is a standard (though odd) variety of Muffler Man. The custom shirt worn by this giant was created for his brief appearances in the 2008 Will Ferrell film "Semi-Pro."

Robot Associate of the Flint Muffler Man

The Muffler Man continues his outdoor vigil at Flint's Dort Mall. Despite a large auction a year or two ago, Dort is still full of antiques. Inside, there is a robot that was a Ford new car quiz booth at the Detroit auto show in the '80s.
