The highway address makes it hard to find them -- there are two Muffler Men we found here. They sit directly across from the Creek Casino. One is at Copeland Switch's Antiques, and the other is next to it by a storage Shop. Was so glad to get 2 in 1 as we have now seen all of the Muffler Men in OK!

Notable because he was custom accessorized, years ago, with a holstered six-shooter.

Grove Muffler Man Cowboy

The Grove Oklahoma cowboy, formerly at Don's Swap Shop has reappeared! He was taken down in late 2010 and was stored by owner Daisy Davis after her husband Don passed away. Daisy agreed to sell her cowboy in December 2016 to the owner of Copeland Switch Antiques (who had purchased another Muffler Man in 2015). Now both cowboys stand at opposite ends of the property against different buildings. The current owner enjoys the vintage look of the giants, so neither have been restored and are displayed as he bought them.

The swap shop roof collapsed due to the heavy snowfall and weakened roof. the items inside were moved over to the neighboring building. The Muffler Man was sent out to be refurbished and should be back sometime in the near future.
