I went back to see Tony in his new digs on City Terrace Drive, in the City Terrace area of Los Angeles. He looks cleaner than the last time I was there, but the car he holds in his large hands seems to have been damaged.

Tony's Transmissions has moved to 3900 City Terrace Drive in the City Terrace neighborhood of Los Angeles. Tony the Muffler Man made the move with them, but he looks to be in bad need of a cleaning.

Went to take a photo of Muffler Man Tony yesterday evening for a photo project I'm doing, and he was sadly no longer there. Anyone know where he's gone?
