A BRIEF HISTORY OF HAYWARD'S "BIG MIKE"
.
Thousands of Hayward locals grew up with Big Mike. The statue was a beloved local landmark, part of the Hayward landscape for 50 years.
.
Over the years, the statue became regarded as the sentinel of north Hayward.
.
Back in the day, Mission Boulevard was the main highway running through Hayward and connecting our town to other cities of the East Bay. Big Mike stood at the northern border, silently watching the cars go by.
.
Many long time locals have fond memories of driving into town and seeing Big Mike. When the statue came into view on the side of the road, you knew you were home.
.
The giant's first job was advertising a car wash. He reportedly held a huge scrub brush in those days. Later, the car wash was converted into the Tyre Treds warehouse, and Big Mike turned his talents to selling tires.
.
When the Tyre Treds property was sold in 2011, Big Mike was purchased by a local plastics businessman. The statue was moved to his shop in Hayward's industrial area and repaired.
.
By 2013, Big Mike had been completely refurbished and now stands proudly once again in the Bell Plastics yard on National Ave.
.
Owner Bruce Kennedy is an avid collector of novel statues. He purchased another Muffler Man in 2013, a cowboy, installed on the same property. And recently, he acquired an original Doggie Diner head.
.
Today, Big Mike is enjoying his second lease on life amid the hustle and bustle of Hayward's industrial west side. Exactly where every giant muffler man dreams of spending his golden years.

Every week ive been playing on Fremont street with a friend #Fremont #fremontstreet #fremontstreetexperience #angelinapolerina #lasvegas #citygirl #vegas

Another skip-sheet tile roof. Owner had a massive leak in the garage under this valley. Without completely installing a new roof with an actual wood deck her best option is a wider 5-crown valley flashing.

This was definitely a nice break from the Vegas strip! @fremontstreet has everything you need - food, drinks, music, entertainment, the largest LED screen in the world, and more! 👍🏻

Happy 4/20/18!

Like a moth to a flame- if I hear music in the middle of the night, I will walk towards it. Impromptu jazz band meets “sometimes” at Gas Works Park to play in the dark. Of course. #fremont #seattle #jazzband #cityscape #spaceneedle #iguessitsspring
