2nd Amendment Cowboy Muffler Man

Amarillo, Texas

TexasRoadside Attraction

The 2nd Amendment Cowboy muffler man is a roadside attraction in Amarillo, Texas. It’s hard to miss this giant man with a controversial message, located just down the road from the famed Cadillac Ranch on Route 66.

Muffler men roadside attractions are fiberglass giants who stand anywhere from 14 to 25 feet tall. Each has a similar design and was built between 1963 and 1972 by International Fiberglass in Venice, California. With signature stances, these big men stood outside of muffler shops and other businesses to call attention from the road.

This muffler man wears blue jeans, red cowboy boots, a cowboy hat, and a yellow button-up shirt stamped with the name “2nd Amendment Cowboy” front and back. While his face is typical of the average muffler man, much of his figure and his hand and arm positioning is a more unique style.

For many years this roadside attraction wore a plain yellow shirt while standing outside a neighborhood barbecue steakhouse. Prior to that he was located in Sanger, Texas, covered in bullet holes, and possibly was a hybrid of parts among Glenn Goode’s collection. After the roadside attraction was auctioned off in 2014, he moved in front of the Cadillac RV Park and Cadillac Ranch Gift Store where he stands at today.

In front of the 2nd Amendment Cowboy is a plaque that recites the 2nd amendment and behind him is a row of pastel Cadillacs (non-spray painted, non-buried, but still angled Cadillacs) with mannequins of Elvis Presley, Willie Nelson, and John Wayne at the wheel. As of 2023 he is flanked by a pair of oversized pistols.
