Rosehill Muffler Man.

Muffler Man, Formerly Mr. Furnace

The heating company who owed Mr. Furnace moved, so now the big guy helps promote the new tenants, Rosehill Auctions. They gave him a makeover complete with a new pink shirt, and made his arms pink as well.

Mr. Furnace.

Mr. Furnace

Mr. Furnace has been altered since the last post. He now holds a sign in front of him advertising "One Hour Heating and Air Conditioning." They are the original owners and are still in business. It looks like the sign has been there for a while.

Unfortunately, they cut off his hands when the put up it up. Not sure where they are.

Mr. Furnace, a Canadian Muffler Man.

Mr. Furnace

I saw that you were talking about my old friend Mr. Furnace. He does indeed exist and he is located in Fonthill, Ontario. Probably about a half hour outside of Niagara Falls.

Now that you guys have opened the door to Canada I feel that this big freak be shared with our American neighbours.

Interesting that he has that same French-ified head that appears only on Canadian Muffler Men.
