Imitation Muffler Man.

Replica Muffler Man Lumberjack

Only about 9-10 feet tall. I can't tell if this is a real Muffler Man or not. His face isn't as squared off as the Muffler Man lumberjacks are. But his hairline is the same, the shirt is the same with the same number of buttons, his pants have the same suspender buttons and his boots look the same. I think he is a Muffler Man.

Whoever created this statue was certainly inspired by the Bunyan Muffler Man design, but this is a unique statue, not a true Muffler Man. His current owners told us that they acquired him from a Christmas Tree farm in New York State.

A new Muffler Man spotted in Cottageville is on Ripley Rd, at a farm equipment rental business.
