Yeah thats why i thought this was a bit suss to start with. Surely if it actually happened, someone out of the rumoured numourous people would have gotten atleast one photo, and i think andrew berry is a bit smarter then that to go and show off and crash his car that he has worked hard on.

Know Andrew personally do you and can therefore vouch for his level of intelligence?

Read what he wrote about the car mate. The way he spoke about it, he clearly had a very big soft spot for the car. And how many dimwitted idiots do you see being magazine editors or being extremely high in a magazine?
