Lauterbach Giant

1569 Wabash Ave, Springfield, IL 62704

Public Art

This giant fiberglass statue stands outside Lauterbach Auto Service.

Lauterbach Tire and Auto Service has a fiberglass "muffler man" giant standing in the parking lot. He used to hold a tire, but was recently upgraded to be more patriotic with a U.S. flag. In 2006, the muffler man lost his head during a tornado, but was skillfully repaired by the station.
