Yee haw: Norwich, Connecticut's Cowboy Muffler Man
An unassuming strip mall in the southeastern Connecticut town of Norwich is the unlikely home of a towering fiberglass cowboy, perched between Eblens casual clothing store and the Surplus Unlimited. Surplus Unlimited adopted the cowboy as its logo and had him painted on the sides of a large truck parked in front of the store when we visited last summer. Bravo to them for having such a cool incongruent corporate mascot. Great deals on flashlights, too.
