Related Members of the Muffler Man Family - Big John - A grinning, towering colossus of a grocery store clerk, beefy arms bowed outward to accommodate giant bags of groceries.

Paul Bunyan Hotdog Statue Standing 19 feet tall and clutching a giant hot dog, this Paul Bunyan statue, purposely spelled with an “o”, is one of Route 66’s mythic Muffler Man Statues. A few of these giants still proudly grace the roadsides of historic Route 66. This one is located in Atlanta, Illinois, just across the street from the Palms Grill Café, which features fine fare from The Mother Road’s golden age.
