be useful.  Now, I'm not exactly a behemoth (5'6" tall), but I'm not a total
squirt either.  As a matter of fact, I think average height isn't much more
than that...but ANYWAY, is there something, other than putting on
silly-looking modern mirrors, that I can do about this.  I don't mind using
some sort of appropriate-looking after-market mirror, but I'd rather not
drill new holes.  As a matter of fact, I'd like to use the ones I
have...perhaps I'm just going about aiming them incorrectly.  Anyone?


I don't know if I'm even close to "left field" here, but are you sure that
each mirror is on the 
correct side of the car?? Ie., the left mirror on the left side, and the
right mirror on the right side?

Hey, it's a thought!!

OTOH, if you drive fast enough, you don't need mirrors anyway, right?!  ;-)
