This story starts at the end. Pinewood 2013 is over and Helios' car is happily stored away in its display case, along with his and Leonardo's prior year models.
These are the custom display boxes I described yesterday, where they proudly hang on the boys' bedroom wall.
Helios walked away with 3rd place in his Den and Most Creative over all.
And that is a Bad Piggies car. All the kids knew it. Few of the adults did.
It is faster than it looks.
It even won a few heats.
And both Daddy and son were proud of their work.
