My best guess - it's from 8071, the Technic Bucket Truck (the V6 decal from the front).  Possibly???

Yeah, a lot more!  But I figured from the picture that it was printed on a slope, and then it was just a matter of going through 13 pages of parts on Bricklink :grin: (twice :blush: )

Was? It still is - unless you show us your solution! :laugh:

Okay, more hints:
- it's yellow
- it's huge
- it's a men's dream
- the set was the starter for a real official AFOL site (in Germany if I recall correctly)

No ideas?

And I thought it is so iconic, everbody would easily realize where it's from. :look:

Maybe a closer look at the top edge of the photo helps.
