    Model T1

    Matching color fuzzy dice in every vehicle I've had including my late model truck. I've gotten so used to it I don't pay attention to not being able to see.

    Since my wind screen is only 7in tall I don't hang anything from the rear view mirrow. There is a small panel above the windshield 4in tall that I have put assorted hotrod pins, I d vehicle tag, and oh yeah my tachometer over the mirrow........................

    My high school tassel. It's been there since I graduated in 1981. Still have the same license plate number, too.

    A small Cross, and Mine and my Wife's High School tassel. We met while she was still in High School (very early 70's). The Cross reminds me of how Blessed I am, the tassels are over 40 years old, and remind me of when We started our journey together!

  10. Baby Booty's! These are the ones that my girl friend (now my wife) gave me for my car when we were going steady back in the 60's. That was what you did in Stamford CT. back then. Well my wife kept them all these years and they now hang in our coupe!

    Absolutely nothing! The last time I had anything hanging from the mirror it was a raccoon tail; some SOB threw a rock through the driver side door window, and stole the raccoon tail. Enough of that! Butch/56sedandelivery.

    BS hanging from a mirror is simply the traditional "kid crying doll" of today. Stu

    IMG_1140.JPG A replacement graduation tassel hangs from the mirror, of my 47. With a divided windshield it is not a distraction. In 1964, after graduation, I hung my original tassel in my Model "A". For the next year I drove wheels off that car with the windshield open most of the time. The wind beat the hell out of that tassel. Then the car sat in the back yard for 10 years. On my final check of my parents home, before turning it over to new owners, I found the tassel hanging between the studs in the garage, Dad had saved it. I still hang it in the Model "A" once in a while.

    I've got fuzzy dice hanging in my "A" hiboy. My grandaughter gave them to me and you all know grandaughters can do no wrong, LOL!!!
    So they'll hang there till they get sufficiently ratty looking enough to have an excuse to remove them and hang them on my "chandalier" trophy (presented to me by my fellow SFCC members) in my shop.

    Shrunken head in one car and a voodoo chicken foot in the other. No proof of good luck or bad in either car. So far, i might add.

    About the only thing I ever hang off the mirror is one of those little tree air fresheners. Don't do that very often.
