Say ‘Hello’ to Stan the Muffler Man from Birmingham, Alabama

No trip to another state is complete without checking to see if there is a Muffler Man in the vicinity. You can never be sure if you’ll pass that way again, so stopping is a must!

Our recent trip to Birmingham, Alabama was no different. We stopped in to see “Stan” the GCR Muffler Man.

With the fiberglass giants getting up there in age, they often need some upkeep and repair. They also get customized and personalized. Many of them have unique features like chest hair, eyelashes, and in blue-eyed Stan’s case, white gloves.

I don’t know that I want to venture a guess as to what he’s up to with those gloves on but he looks like he’s beckoning you to ‘bring it on!’

Stan underwent some major surgery in 1998 after a storm did a number on him.
