Long Description:
In Norwood, along U.S. Route 1, is this 'muffler man' on the side of the road, and 'Scrappers' by the door.

The sculptures are located on the northbound side of U.S. 1, north of the intersection with Morse Street, and south of the intersection with Dean Street, and across the street from FM Global. Look for a Meineke sign.

The muffler man is slightly below the average height of a person. It is made of primarily muffler and tube components. The arms and legs are particularly stiff looking. The face and ear components are made of other components that look like fasteners.

As I was just leaving, a guy yelled from door, "Have you seen this one?" At the door is another car part sculpture in the form of a dog. The person who called me turned out to be the creator of the dog. It is about calf height. Similar muffler components are used to create the body and head, including 'floppy ears.' In the front, the word, 'Scrappers' has been formed.
