Looks like Big Man could use a higher SPF, he's starting to peel!

The Roanoke Service Center Muffler Man is in good shape and now holds a sign of the building's address.

We visited family in Roanoke this past weekend. This is the muffler man on Williamson Road in Roanoke, VA. He's still standing there, in pretty good shape, and now holds a tire in one hand.

Muffler Man - Bunyan

On the west side of Rt 11 north (AKA Williamson Road), as you're heading out of town, there's a classic Muffler Man in front of -- get this -- JR's Service Center! Not a muffler shop, but I bet they'll be more than happy to bolt one on! Blue shirt, navy pants, Bunyan head with the beard, 25' (estimated), pretty good repair. The hands are correct; I went by just after Christmas and he was holding a 4' diameter wreath in his right one.
