This handsome fella was photographed by the Husband in Elmsford, NY.
"Muffler Men (or Muffler Man) is a term used to describe large molded fiberglass sculptures that are placed as advertising icons, roadside attractions or for decorative purposes, predominantly in the United States. Standing approximately 20 feet tall, the first figure was a Paul Bunyan character designed to hold his axe. Derivatives of that figure were widely used to hold full-sized car mufflers, tires, or other items promoting various roadside businesses."
Did you know what a Muffler Man is? Have you ever seen one? It's sort of a little hobby of ours - spotting them. You never know where you might see one!
This is probably my favorite one. It was in all places, Chincoteague, VA - sort of out in the middle of nowhere, as you can see. I would love to know the story behind this guy - I wonder what he was advertising??
Have you ever seen any cool Muffler Men?
