Hawks Convertible Light Bar - BUY IN

Alrights guys.... So exchanged a couple emails with Ryan at Hawk's, and the convertible light bar can be produced, however, would need a "buy-in" of at least 10 people to get the ball rolling. Price still needs to be confirmed with Bruce, but figure we could get a list going of those that would be interested.

For those that haven't seen, the link is below:

So for those that want to purchase, please add you name to the list.

1) west1nm
2) blacksunshine91'
3) Crashbandit63
4) jhawk73
5)
6)
7)
8)
9)
10)

Re: Hawks Convertible Light Bar - BUY IN

When you guys say light bars do you are talking about a roll bar that has interior lights built in it correct

Re: Hawks Convertible Light Bar - BUY IN

I was thinking it was going to be like a chrome Molly 4140 type material and it was going to have map lights or interior lights in it Super Chevy or Camaro performers have a guy who did a third GEN Camaro convertible and he actually made his and sold 10 of them and never made another one so I was hoping it was this guy producing more of them

Re: Hawks Convertible Light Bar - BUY IN

I tried calling multiple times, left a lot of messages and couldnít get a call back from anyone. Iím really disappointed in them as a vendor. Iíd rather be told no vs. just being ignored. Terrible service.....

Re: Hawks Convertible Light Bar - BUY IN

Why not try to contact Classic design concepts directly? They are already the leader in sport/light bar for F-Body!
