The Bull of Berea

This fiberglas bull used to stand outside Blue Grass Restaurant in the 1960s and early 1970s, then sat in some guy in Berea's backyard for a few years. Friends and I used to sneak back there and climb up on it at night when we were kids.

In the 1980s the bull got a new gig, and became the new mascot for Near New Auto Center where it remains to the present day.

Why does a used car lot have a giant bull for a mascot? I dunno, why does McDonalds have an effeminate clown and a big purple blob for theirs?
