Iconic bulldozer sold

Online auction for the iconic yellow bulldozer that according to the seller "collapsed communism in Serbia" finished today. The historical bulldozer was sold for approximately 130 000 $ to a bidder with user name PartijaMladihSrbije (which translates to "party of young Serbians"). This was the only user which entered this auction.
The yellow bulldozer became a symbol of the October 2000 revolt in Serbia against Slobodan Milosevic. It was used to smash through the glass walls of the offices of a state-run TV station, enabling protestors to enter and occupy the building.
