I thought it was also 3 years, but wasn't game to go throwing a suspect figure around on such an issue. so thank you all for clarifying.
As for the roll bar, i can't be much specific help, however i would recommend talking to your local roll cage builder. Make sure that it will be CAMS approved. I havn't had it done yet, but a half cage (approved and all) for my Alfetta will cost about $1k. Cheap life insurance.
The reason it must be CAMS approved is that it will be built to the right standards to withstand a good proper rollover. I saw some backyard job involved in a roll a couple of months ago. The car rolled once. It is fair to say that the bar saved the driver, however if it had of rolled again, it would of been game over. On later inspection, the bar could be moved about a foot all over the place. A real eye opener.
Also, you may even be excluded from events if the cage is not approved. If not done properly it actually makes the car more dangerous than the same car without one. apparently.
