    Default Best Roll Bar / Cage for Weekend Warrior / Show Car?

    I have original 1980 seat belts in my coupe, and frankly they are so outdated they need to be replaced. As I plan to go with a 408W in another year, I also want to upgrade the belts. I'd like to make the coupe autocross capable, even an Optima event, but am not concerned with NHRA / NMRA / NMCA legal. I don't plan to run in the 10s in the 1/4 mile to warrant a 6-point cage for it. I was looking at the MM site yesterday, and they have a good selection of roll bars available. The question I have is what would be best.

    My car is a weekend car, and not what I would term a daily driver. I am not too concerned with having a swing-out bar, and I don't carry passengers. I want a harness connection, and *I think* a diagonal brace for extra stiffness. Anyone running a roll bar currently that would have some advice of things to buy or not to buy?

    Everyone I know that used them gave Autopower the best ratings for a pre fab roll bar or cage.
