Hello, Look around at the local speed shops for Autopower Roll Bars. If none of them carry them then call I/O Port at 1-800-949-5712. They carry them along with many more race related items.

The Autopower bars are bolt in but can be welded in also. They have simple 4 point to full cages.

I would recocmend buying the pre-welded kits, and just weld them to the frame. A lot less hassle and not that expensive either. Although they are serious pain in the A%% if you drive it at all. It get easier getting in and out of the car when you figure out how to dislocate your joint's!

With the bars going beside the seats it could have been a 8 or 10 point cage.. Here are some pics of a 4, 8, and 10 point cage

Go to Jegs.com and click on Chassis and Suspension and then "Roll Cages" and click on Jegster for GM and I think they make a cage to fit your application.
Here's the last 10 point:

If you just wanna look cool then make it out of exhaust tubing!
Cheaper than steel pipe!
If you really want to look cool then build so much horsepower to require a real roll cage...
THAT IS COOL!!!!

Couldn’t have said it better myself! If you want to be cool, build a car that is fast enough to REQUIRE a cage to pass inspection at the track! Don’t be like all the “ricers” out there. Kinda like a big wing to increase down force on the rear of a front wheel drive car….just gets you the go fast look with no hook. You’ll be cool as long as the car is parked, but when you get stomped by a 4 cylinder, that roll cage won’t look so cool anymore….
