    Can't find a thing about the artist David Wylde
    It is titled "HIROHATA"
    It is 5/50 cast and done in 1994
    Car measures approx 7.5" long and 3"wide
    Have never seen another one
    Any and All info would be much appreciated

    The last name is spelled WYLDE in two places on the piece and I looked up David Wilder, his work is way different....thanks

    It is VERY Heavy, could be a cast resin of some sorts, trying to find out more about it, might have found the artist due to another post here......it is pretty cool....
