    I just wanted to give a huge thank you to Henry Richards and his crew at Steadfast Mfg. for building the Goodguys 2020 Hot Rod of the year. When this project began some 3 years ago it was intended to be just a badass patina'd hotrod but as things progressed it was apparent that it should be taken to the next level and be a finished car. I never in my wildest dreams ever thought I would own a car this nice or win any awards of this level. This was all Henry's vision and I just let him do what he does and that is to build phenominal cars. He would always ask me what I thought of his ideas before he did anything but I had total trust in his vision and would basically just tell him to do what he wanted.

    It goes beyond just building the car, the friendship that has evolved between my wife and I with Henry and his family means more to me than any award. What a great family and what a great person Henry is. For a young man of 35 or so, Henry has so many talents and ideas I can't wait to see what he builds next. I think this is just the beginning of great things for him. He has built alot of nice cars before but he is ready to take it to the next level. The same goes for all the people working at Steadfast, I can't say enough good things about all of them. They are all just a very talented bunch of guys.
