    Sad to see it go, but I hope it goes to a nice family that needs lots and lots of room.

    Here's something Mrs. Go-Dad posted on the F5 facebook page.

    Man I drove the car like a Paw-Paw because I was afraid to pick up and throw pebbles.

    Thanks For Hanging In With Me & Cheering Me On!

    Al,

    I doubt if it will be any time soon, but you never know.
    We are hoping to purchase a Serpent Express (Hard Top Style) so we can drag Redbone around when start to travel.
    Until then we are planning our youngest daughter's wedding and sell my Mom's place.
    Heck, maybe you want to move to the Dell, Slidell that is.

    I just finished settling my Mom's estate and the home is the last thing to go.

    Thanks Gentlemen,

    The support of guys like you and the rest of the Factory Five Family has kept me moving forward.

    Megan & Nic moved to Salem NC where she will be attending Wake Forest to study law.
    They are in a good place since the passing of Agatha and Nic's company is letting him work remotely.
    Our youngest daughter Emma and her fiance' Jarret will be getting married in March of 2021.
    They are just getting over COVID-19 so we hope to see them in a few weeks.
    Baby Go-Dad, Brenton, is starting his 4th year at U.L.L. in Lafayette and is studying Architecture.

    It has truly been a journey, but it is truly time to turn the page and enjoy driving our dream.

    Steve

    Congrats, Steve! Your roadster looks really great! Thanks for all your posts & vids that you shared throughout your build, very helpful! And like many said, you've had to endure through lots of issues and your perseverance and determination has surely paid-off. Thanks for inspiring us all! Heck, I won't even give ya crap about the bow tie, since it looks pretty snazzy!

    Well done Steve! Love the red, no hood scoop, no stripes and painted louvers. Very cool look. Your build has been great to follow.

    This was the car that gave me the inspriation for Redbone:

    https://rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/m...sx-3178/380123

    Though not an exact copy, this was the look/flavor that I was trying to capture, except for the roll bar.

    1. Why not AFR 220 Renagrade heads as they flow better?
    ....I'm a huge fan of Iron Eagle Heads and the 215 intake runners are plenty big.
    ....A stock SBC manifold will not cover the tops of the ports so my manifold choices were very limited to only single-plane race-type bits.

    2. No Rocker arm stud girdle ?
    ....I don't plan to spin it up much past 6,250 so the screw-in rocker arm studs should be okay.
    ....The goal was to make one between 383-400 HP, but we made well over 450 at 10-11 degrees initial timing and right at 500 at 14.

    3. I assume a Dart SHP block ?
    ....Yes, it's the Dart SHP that can be bored up to 4.165 even though I'm only at 4.030".
    ....The engine runs quite cold since the cylinder walls are pretty thick.

    4. Did you look at Callies rotating assembly?
    ....The Eagle assembly was rated far higher than the horsepower that I planned to make.
    ....Originally I had an old Speed-O-Motive externally balanced 400 cast crank with the stupid short 5.565" 400 rods.
    ....It was a nice upgrade from the stock I-Beam assembly plus the Eagle kit is 100% neutrally balanced, unlike my old set up.
    My goal was to create a nice peppy street motor that may make a pass or two from time to time at Gulfport Dragway.
    They'll likely send me home as soon as I make one pass anyway since I'm sure it will be pretty quick.
    Originally the engine was intended for my 1980 Z/28 that went swimming in Katrina.
    The ZF gearbox was a spare that I picked up for my 1995 C-4 Corvette.
    Hope This Makes Sense Regarding Your Questions!

    Yes, thank you, nice build congrats !
