A Connecticut Army reservist who served in Iraq in 2003 has apparently had a "war trophy" seized. Now, most war trophies consist of battle flags, captured weapons, uniform items and the like, but this guy thought big.
The booty? A 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560 SEL. Oh, and not just any Mercedes. This one reportedly belonged to Saddam, and was armored, bullet proofed, had a loudspeaker system, and even "a series of pipes that shoot flames out the side of the car", according to the article. Now that will keep the oppressed masses from getting too close to the vehicle.
Unfortunately for First Sgt. William von Zehle, he'll probably be out the five thousand bucks he paid for the car now that Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents have seized the car as a suspected war trophy.
