Route 66 Buck Atom's Muffler Man

Bucks Head
ArtistMarkClineWe are raising money to have a Route 66 Roadside attraction built which is a 20 foot Muffler Man of Buck Atom's space cowboy built by artist Mark Cline from Enchanted Sculpture Studios. Some history about the Muffler Men from Roadside America! "Muffler Men.  Stoic sentinels of another era? Or smoldering chimneys of unrest? These colossi were originally created in the 1960s by a California fiberglass company for gas station chains in sizes ranging from 14 to 25 feet. M-Men once beckoned noisy and exhaust-weary vehicles to replace their mufflers. The statues' hands were molded to hold mufflers or tires. As establishments closed or changed owners, the lantern-jawed Muffler Men were transplanted to other locales.  While hundreds have been lost forever, many still stalk the shoulders of highways across the nation." The money raised will go towards building the 20 foot Muffler Man, transporting him, setting him up on historic Route 66, and any additional costs that arise. As soon as we get 50% of the funds the artist can start building the space cowboy giant. By supporting this GIANT dream of mine this will increase tourism in Tulsa, Oklahoma and on historic Route 66 with local and international travelers! WE WELCOME EVERYONE!  This roadside attraction is for our community and the travelers of Route 66! Plus...the 76 foot Golden Driller will now have a buddy!
