Looks like exhaust pipe tubing at the slip joint.

MAYBE better than nothing?

I think they were looking to replicate this one on CSX3178 but got the proportions a smidgen off.

Looks aside, it would probably work a heckuva lot better than any of our onesy and twosy roll bars.

One would hit their head/helmet on the centre bar.

No form of head restraints (head rests).

Not for me.

I seriously doubt that. It looks like mild steel pipe, which would easily crumple on impact.

Was this red Cobra for sale recently?

The bar is familiar, and I could swear I saw it on eBaymotors.

It is on Facebook in their classified section. I could be on Ebay. I have a feeling they are having a hard time selling the car. It is located in Louisville, Ohio.

The Challange cars built by Finishline Motorsports had effective roll bars, wish I could post picture.
