As Seen on TV – The Riverhead Muffler Man Indian

Continuing the tv/movie vibe from my post about the Buzz’s Skelly ~ In the same town of Riverhead is a Muffler Man Indian that was featured in an episode of the Sopranos. I have posted about him before but, every now and again I stop by to say hello.

With these big fiberglass beauties standing outside and braving the elements year after year – you’ve got to check on them every once in a while to see how they’re holding up.

It’s starting to look like the Indian could use a little TLC. He’s got some cracks in his fiberglass that are giving way to holes and he could really use a fresh coat of paint. I hope the folks at Riverhead Raceway give him a little love soon. It would be a shame to watch him deteriorate further.

    Yeah, we neglect our landmarks. After your prior mention of this big guy, I saw him on “The Sopranos” and squealed with excitement!

    How is it you manage to find things that match the color of the Tiger so well?

    Great snag!

    He’s been on my list for awhile … I missed him due to rain the last time. Hopefully, I’ll have better luck this year 🙂
