When I was at Junction Valley railroad today in Bridgeport, I found this dodge truck with this lightbar on it.


I was going to get a closer look on my way out of the hobby shop, but it was gone.


Anyone know what brand the crossbar or Lights are?

That crossbar sure looks familiar, as I had one of them about 30 years ago! NAPA auto stores around here used to sell those crossbars empty and they marketed them as accepting most any type of beacon or roof mounted lighting. The feet have a quick release clamp that goes on the raingutters and the amount of tension generated by the positioning of the feet held the bar to the roof when it was clamped down. Since that truck doesn't have gutters, those clamps have obviously been modified. The bar was very lightweight and was made of aluminum, and could bend or bow fairly easily under a particular situation.
