After a number of complaints and comments to the city, Mr. Bendo finally has his pipe back!

The iconic statue recently moved from the front of Buck’s Muffler to Automotive Brake and Exhaust.

Originally, the city told owner Joe Darst a zoning ordinance wouldn’t allow Mr. Bendo to clutch his familiar tailpipe anymore. 

 But, the city reversed that decision, and now Mr. Bendo is once again holding his pipe.
