Malibu, California is well known for its great beach. Malibu is perhaps better known for the La Salsa Man. This former Burger Man now sports a south of the border cuisine in his tray. Classy sombrero too!

The makeover of the La Salsa man was done by artist Bob Wade in 1988.

The Joor Muffler Man in Escondido is really quite handsome. From his finely groomed moustache to the neatly combed hair, the Joor man is a credit to his fellow man. Plus, he even dresses up for the holidays! Do you believe in Santa Joor?

(Near left) How about Santa Joor. Here's the big guy looking quite festive.

No, this isn't some kind of funny Halloween joke. This guy has no head! Fortunately, Scott from the El Monte Sign Company in El Monte, CA is undergoing some great plastic surgery.

Scott; was once a miniature golf man in Duarte, CA, but found a great new home here years back. The El Monte Sign Co. has designed much of the neon signage in the San Gabriel Valley and its only fitting that a prime big man stand on the premises.

The Mentone Man is located in someone's private backyard! Along with the head of a Statue of Liberty copy, this Mentone guy greets or scares passersby in this quaint town. Oh, don't forget to grab some of the best local beef jerky at the store down the street.
