With all of this talk about roll bars and safety, I am taken back to the 
halcyon days of the Golden Age of sports cars.  Before a SCCA race, someone 
would rent a pipe bender, and out behind Small Car Motors we would all pitch in 
to help the newest Juan Manuel Fangio or challenger to Sterling Moss.  
Beginning with a piece of galvanized pipe (hmmm, was that 2" or 3"?), we would 
bend it and weld it to fit.  I think the final step was the Wrigley's Spearmint 
gum to hold it in place.  And they passed SC CA tech inspections in a breeze.
