I have Hard Dog Roll bar on my Honda. They offer many styles. Quality and Customer Service is top notch. I highly recommend them.

Auto Power, Hard Dog & Boss Frog are the 3 main ones for roll bars...
I have a Boss Frog to put in the Miata this winter

I have a hard dog single diagonal, it's high quality and easy to install. If I did it again I think I'd do a double diagonal for the rear visibility.

Gary, are you looking for a 6 point cage or a 4 point roll bar for PDX purposes?

I've seen the Auto Power roll cages for subarus (their rally / FIA style one) saw Jeff Price's impreza after his roll at idaho. No Injuries , and the cage didn't get damaged either.

They have a good fitment from what i've seen. depends a bit on the installer.

Auto Power is definitely a name i know and would go with for my next rally roll cage.

This is for a '94 Miata that I would like to make just for track purposes. I was thinking of a full cage. I've been looking at the Autopower and the Miatacage.com version. Is there a local installer in town? I know some welders and I realize now that I will need to get the hard top and the seats prior to the install. Chain reaction insn't it?

I have a harddog in the Mazdaspeed. It is a nice quality bar.
