I gotta love how they build the product up with proper look and color then at the end say "DO NOT use for towing"

Yeah, I thought pricey too, but I guess considering what's involved to make them ...especially patterned like vintage NMW tabs.... it's probably a fair price. You get all the mounting hardware too.
I was also concerned that they may stop making them and then I'd really be kicking myself if I didn't get 'em while I could.

A lot more lawyers now than in the 60's. Probably adequate and exactly like they were back then, but it's their "out" on liability, I guess. Bars designed today would probably have to be capable of towing an Abrams tank.

UPDATE: I received them (dark orange, like the originals) and put them on. Each one uses 3 bolts ...an existing bumper bolt, and 2 you have to drill (easy to access and do). For now I just have them held in place with the bumper bolt only because I was considering repainting them black, ..but might not. My observaton is that if all 3 bolts were in place I personally don't think I would have any reservations actually towing the vehicle with them, but I'll stick with the vendors recommendation to DO NOT TOW

ANOTHER UPDATE: Had them on all this past Summer. Got a lot of comments. One Nova that's been around and has an original set (with NMW decals) earns me the stink eye from the owner when he sees my car. ...Love it.
