Hum those bars look pretty heavy duty to me.  Made of an aluminum alloy 
shaped in the form of an I beam placed right where the vitals of an occupant 
are sitting in the car also where the bumper of another car would hit. Do you 
think they serve their purpose?  I have scene a VW Jetta hit hard on the side 
and thanks to one of V. W. A. G.  side impact beams the guy was fine when he 
got out of the car.  This was an 85 Jetta.  I think that the bar serves its 
purpose granted it is not as good as the newer models.  Better than almost 
ever other car of it's time besides a Volvo though would you not agree.

have great looking body and interior that means NO RUST!  All colors are good 
but would prefer not to have Tornado Red the other lighter red is Awesome 
though and silver is really good!
