This Am-Mex thing looks like a nice enough character who even has muscles. Check out the eyelashes. Looks like something out of a toxic waste dump.

If you're looking for some unique muffler art signage, Tony's is the place. Funny to see what appears to be two characters stuck head first into a muffler.

This little guy is worth a double-take. Although a bit skinny, the Pomona Man is ready to assist you with your service needs. Check him out holding that muffler in his arms.

The radiator service business called Northridge Auto Wrecking, Inc . uses a life size old car as its marquee. At least it catches attention.

This Elsinore Family of mufflers sits at the ready above G&R mufflers. Yes, this family of tin people even has a dog.

 

 

 

 

 

The Lonely Bones
San Jacinto, CA

In the hills near the glittery Soboba Casino, one can find a peculiar collection of sculpted prehistoric skeletons. They stand alongside an old crumbling road, and are a particularly odd sight too behold in the brown barren hills beneath the towering San Jacinto Mountains. Their construction is a mystery. Many have tried to seek out the artist, but with little avail. And to this day, the Lonely Bones stand secretly in the hills, solemnly watching the comings and goings of the tiny town of San Jacinto in the nearby distance. Text above was posted in the local newspaper and written by Justin Parpan.

The Lonely Bones are in the town of San Jacinto and are near the Soboba Indian Reservation. They are also about a thirty minute drive from the world famous Cabazon Dinosaurs. All photos were taken in the Summer of 2000 and info courtesy Justin Parpan. 07-06
