Muffler Man - Happy Half Wit

He's still here, as he has been for all of my 44 years. Ken's Muffler Shop is no more. The business is now "Drive Away Motors," and I fear for the Muffler Man's future.

Still looking happy -- and actually holding a muffler.

Muffler Man - Happy Half Wit

He is in good shape, even after two hurricanes back to back. It is just a long block off the interstate and easy to get back on the freeway.

After surviving Hurricane Rita this gentle giant still stands in front of Ken's Muffler in Beaumont, TX. The Halfwit has spiffy new duds! He was recently painted.
