One word of caution....

I ordered a "Kirk Racing" bar for my TR8.  They shipped it via 18 wheeler...

...the shipping was $200.00.  If I hadn't needed it for an upcoming event, I
would have told them to take it back.


I decided to get an Autopower roll bar. I order it from Pegasus, their local
distributor. Pegasus said it comes to me straight from Autopower freight
collect. So I called Autopower to ask about shipping. They said it will ship
by truck and cost me about $125 just for shipping. I asked them if they
couldn't ship UPS or Greyhound and the guy said no, the roll bar is too
large. He said they've been doing this for more than thirty years, and they
haven't found a way to ship cheaper.

I am going to go ahead with the purchase anyway. Me and my wife's skulls and
necks are worth more than $125 in shipping.
