Muffler Man - Halfwit

Halfwit Muffler Man in excellent condition on Mockingbird Lane in West Dallas.

[Dane Tessler, 12/14/2003]

This is the Muffler Man reported at Ken's Mufflers, Northwest Highway (Mockingbird Lane runs parallel). He holds a giant muffler. Nice paint job on the eyes, like an alien being from the auto repair planet.

Muffler Man - Happy Halfwit

I think I've got one - He's in Dallas, in front of Ken's Mufflers (a big tipoff) on Northwest Highway (aka Loop 12) just west of the Marsh intersection. He's got the classic hand position, but he's been "duded up" to resemble Howdy Doody or Alfalfa, complete with straw hat and freckles.
