Muffler Men: Tow Truck Driver, Spock

Lee and his son were both so nice and knowledgeable about the Muffler Men. They have three complete men, over 40 gas station signs, original McDonald's Playland items, and a plethora of other artifacts. They have lots of things planned for the future that they are currently working on. My entire family thoroughly enjoyed this.

Mr. Spock.

Muffler Men

The owner has two intact Muffler Men plus the Spock Muffler Man, which has been moved here and is being restored. Two hundred vintage signs are being erected. He has many other items, too (Superman in a booth, McDonald's playground equipment, a Pegasus, several restored autos). He is super friendly and showed me around. Easy to find.

Tow Man.

Driven Towing Muffler Men

There are now four Muffler Men here: a Paul Bunyan, a Mobile Man, a Texaco Big Friend, and Tow Man. Plus there are a lot of vintage cars and vintage oil and gas signs and a whole McDonald's playground from the early 1970s.

Towing Muffler Man

Hot Springs Muffler Man

We recently set up a new Muffler Man at Driven Towing and Recovery. He is a custom tow truck driver made by Mark Cline. After completion in August we hauled the giant to our (American Giants) shop and installed an internal structure so he can free stand.

We installed him at Driven in early November, just a few yards from an original Bunyan that previously stood in Oklahoma. The new Muffler Man holds a large chain and J hook.
