I recently saw Ryan' post about "Signs". I use old signs for inspiration for some of my logo design work. So speaking of signs are you familiar with the Muffler Men? I found a site with some information on them. Check it out. Main Site: http://www.roadsideamerica.com/muffler/ Look for one near you: http://www.roadsideamerica.com/muffler/track.html I remember seeing these guys crowing up traveling from town to town. I even remember going to a muffler shop or two with these guys out in front. Apparently they came about in the early 60's from a company called International Fiberglass owned by a Steve Dashew. You can read all about him from the link I gave. I looked them up because I recently discovered we have one here in my hometown, Waxahachie, TX. He used to be the Chiefs Auto parts man and now resides in Lumpkins Stadium, our high school stadium. He is our "mascot" saluting the field. I am going to go try and get a better pic with my wife's SLR Canon. Anyway, I just thought he has some part of the history of the automotive world and maybe even the Hot Rod world. I think one day I would like to take what ever current Hot Rod I have and drive to as many as I could and get a photo of the car and the men. Just for my personal collection plus the drive would be awesome. Or even when I travel check my route to see if I will be close to one and stop by and shoot a photo or two.
