Legend has it that a Mercedes got hosed down by that roostertail and that he got a new car out of it. May be a tall tale I don't know.

It is true.A brand new Mercedes got ruined in that pic.

I remember seeing it in the bar and we were looking at it wondering where the pic was taken. Good picture.
