Bunyon Giant, Atlanta

The second of the Illinois “brothers”, the Bunyon giant - like the Gemini Giant before him - was also one of the original “muffler men” used to promote auto service.

These days the Bunyon Giant has swapped his exhaust for a huge hot-dog as for many years he stood outside “Bunyon’s” restaurant in Cicero, Illinois. In 2003, when the restaurant closed, he was relocated to Atlanta where he could maintain his iconic Route 66 presence.

About Driving Route 66

What started as a record of my personal Route 66 experience has grown into an active community of Route 66 veterans and newcomers alike. This website relies entirely on the experiences of its users so please feel free to recommend your own personal favourites.

Every Route 66 road trip is unique, and this site is in no way intended to be a definitive guide to the old road. However, I sincerely hope it offers a starting point to anyone planning their own Route 66 vacation.
