Muffler Man - Indian

His arm has been repaired. He stands in front of a restaurant that is attached to the discount store. I was there just a few days ago checking out the store (Richard's Discount Store), which is in a large building just a few miles north of another large discount store (Baily's) on the same road. You can find just about anything for sale at either location. Even if you're not wanting to buy anything, it is interesting to just look around at what they do have for sale.

The Indian Muffler Man stands outside of Richard's of Toto (a huge discount store). It can be seen any time of day, as it is on the outside of the building, close to the road.

Toto Indian.

Muffler Man - Indian

This Indian stands outside of Richard's Discount Store. They had a fire several years ago; when they rebuilt the Indian showed up. There are several types of discount stores in and around Toto. It's just a small hole in the wall, but if you are looking for something to do in Northern Indiana and you like discounts, then Toto is the place to go. A few miles south of Toto is Bailey's which is a huge discount store.
