Muffler Man - Bunyan

I found the store, but no Muffler Man.

[Bob, 09/02/2018]

This Muffler Man, who lacks feet, was toppled by a wind storm in early 2017 (He had previously been felled by a tornado in 1998). The owner of the property, an auto repair shop, vowed to repair the rooftop Bunyan, but thus far he's still missing.

The Guardian muffler man is looking great in his metallic auto body paint togs. Now he also holds a giant (even for him) hockey stick to rep the Blackhawks.

Stands on the top of Guardian Auto Rebuilders in Evergreen Park. The Bunyan Muffler Man has a very new, shiny coat of paint.

Muffler Man - Bunyan

Atop Guardian Auto Rebuilders. Back up and in service.... Had a low level Tornado/bad storm in late summer 1998 and was knocked down... He was repaired and has fresh Du Pont Chroma base auto paint on him, including candy apple red shirt...

Muffler Man - Bunyan

There is a muffler man standing on top of an auto body repair shop in Evergreen Park. He is located on Kedzie Avenue, just north of 95th Street, across from a cemetery. He apparently just had his nails done, in a lovely shade of black, and is showing them off. How gothic!
