Giant Men – Muffler Men
So you want a crowd pleasing show stopper, look no farther. Bell Plastics’ giant men are a real blast from the pass. International Fiberglass started making giant men in 1962 +/-. Since Bruce first adopted one of International Fiberglass’ giant men, Big Mike in 2011. He has probably collect the largest collection of giant men anywhere. The collection now includes several muffler men an Uniroyal Girl, two Doggie Diner heads and even a Santa. When visiting you should also watch out for the dinosaurs. Don’t worry Turok our dinosaur hunter keeps them out of the offices.
Because he is Bruce it didn’t take long to start making his own statues. While it started with Bruce making a new head for Big Mike’s Halloween costume. Later named Halloween Mike. It has mushroomed into complete sets of molds for the Giant men, Miss America, Mortimer Snerd, and the giant Cowboy.
We can build you a giant man of your own. Repair and repaint your muffler man or other statue. Rent you one for a day or a month.

Uncle Sam head
Using a mold made from an original muffler man we made the head in two pieces and then seamed the to pieces together. A custom hat and cloth suit was also made for our Uncle Sam. Due to rather high winds the cloth suit only lasted 45 minutes. We went inside for lunch and the suit was gone when we came out.
We have 3 different heads on display at our Hayward, CA plant. The Demon and the Frankenstein heads are on statue in October and the Uncle Sam during July.
Repairs in progress.
