Muffler Man - Head Ahead

This guy's headless days are almost over according to the workers at Lugnutz Tire Service. They have restored the Bunyan head and will soon repaint their football player back into the lumberjack he used to be. I stopped and got the scoop and some last pictures before the restoration starts -- hopefully some time this summer, they said.

Muffler Man

We've been passing this Muffler Man all my life. He's a highly anticipated sight on our way to visit Grandma; in our family he's fondly called "Baseball Onion." His former incarnation (before being a football player with the #8) was Paul Bunyan. Look at his clothing's details and you'll see the lumberjack-ness. My childish mispronunciation left him with our nickname.

"Baseball Onion" and a chocolate-dipped cone at the nearby DQ were always highlights of our trip.

Steelers fans are probably shocked that you thought he was a baseball player.
