Default Patrick, Have You Thought About a Kirkham?

No affiliation. Dual roll bars!

Dual roll bars tend to look funny on anybody else's car but mine. I think it's a combination of the black roll bars with the black padding and the black sidepipes that make mine look so right.

That Kirkham is just a roller (beautiful) so you will need a bit more $
to complete it.

Unless you and your passenger were almost killed in a single roll bar car. Then you tend to want something a little better as far as protection when you build your next one.

I seem to bang my head in to them almost as often as I fry the back of my left ankle. Hmmm... maybe head trauma explains my peculiarities.

Maybe your ankle bone is connected to your head bone.

Well, the car is located in Ogden, UT, so you could send it back to the Kirkhams and have them "fix" it.

Thank you for not being cruder with your anatomical references regarding the proximity of my head to other structures... or orifices.

I think I'm going to stop using and in my posts...some here don't get my sarcasm and my intent to needle Patrick gets lost in emotion.

Needling people is half the fun of this forum. And I certainly dish out my share of it (although I try and keep it under control). I generally know I've crossed the line when I get a note from Computerworks that, while not being impolite, has an underlying tone that whispers "look, the washing machine broke this afternoon and now one of the kids just threw up on the new couch, so I really don't need this from you tonight...."

Yes, the humor gets me through reading another "real versus replica", "small block versus big block", "single roll bar versus dual roll bar", and the "Hey, I'm a Newbie here, which Cobra is best?" threads.

Edit: Oh and the latest...the "my Center Arm Rest is better than yours."

I will not ask what you two were doing that you hit your head a number of times.

I did the dual roll bars as well. It just looks good to me.

Sorry, my post did sound a little harsh. It was a reality in this guys case though...

Back to your regularly scheduled program.

I find nothing wrong with 2 roll bars. I enjoy my kirkham from the driver’s seat and respect the safety of my passengers. Especially my wife and kids. My roll bars seem to be a lot lower then the ebay kirkham because of my Lemans Hardtop. Some people seem to have more fun picking apart other cobras then enjoying them. Life is way to short!!!!!

I'm not sure who your message was directed to, but if was me, then my answer is as follows:

1. I try to post when there's a Kirkham on eBay, and
2. You missed my humor, as well as some others, that was directed towards Patrick, since he sometimes has been known to direct a barb or two towards the FFR crowd.

By the way, safety is a relative term. A modern car with bumpers, side impact protection, ABS, traction control, PB, PS, and numerous airbags placed throughout the cabin is much more safe.

Don't encourage Rodney. You should have told him that his posts are "technically humorous."

(In my best Elvis impersonation). "Thank you. Thank you very much."

Trust me. I'm not technical anything.
