Andromida Blown Big Blocked Nick Butler creation featured a bouncing

Richard Whales Awesome Herald is it possible to use awesome and Herald in the
same sentence? Well I would of said no but looking back it was awesome in the
fact every nut bolt part was polished, plated or painted it was amazing the body
later was made so it lifted up and you could see the chassis which had the same
treatment. I remember it looking beautiful and I thought why? Apparently Richard used to strip
the car down after every use and polish and mint it all up again... Update :
Richard Wales Herald was eventually broken up , he would'nt sell it whole to
anyone, the chassis complete went to live under a Y.
