Stripped down maintenance!
First publishedin World Highways
Google has removed an image from its popular street view service that had attracted unwanted attention on the internet from sharp-eyed, and sharp-tongued, commentators. The image, shot in the German city of Mannheim, apparently showed a naked man climbing out of the boot (trunk) of a Mercedes. He was watched as he did so by a somewhat disinterested dog lying close at hand and surrounded by items presumably removed from the vehicle. Numerous comments were posted with regard to the image and speculation was rife as to what the man could have been doing. Some have suggested he may have been replacing a rear light, although this would not explain his apparent choice of (no) attire. Nude car maintenance is not a mainstream pursuit that has so far gained a great deal of publicity.
