    I used to be uptight about having nothing hanging from my mirror but then I found that small things really didn't impede my sightlines at all. Hell, if you really want to screw up your vision , go and chop your car six inches. So... then all sorts of junk infested the mirror and dash: girlfriend's garter belt, ancient plastic skeleton, plastic hideous deoderant flamingo, Mexicana pompoms, Elvis/Jesus , magnetic Mary, rubber snake and a card given to me by some religious guy in the street that says: "Jesus loves pornstars".

    Nothing. I never liked the look of anything hanging off the mirror. To me it looks cheap. My opinion. Scott

    Nice old 3100 Series Chevy pickup boasts a myriad of conversation pieces on the mirror and dash. This is an excellent example of personalizing your vehicle. For safety's sake, he no doubt removes them before the drive home...

    My grandfather was a detective, and I have his old, worn leather blackjack he carried on the job. Had it hanging from the mirror for quite a while. That is until the wifey said it looked like one half of the bull bags all the 4wheel drive trucks have hanging under their rear bumper. I took it down.

  14. Mine too, nothing else has as much value as one of those poppies. There is always one hanging from my mirror.

    Sometimes a Christmas tree air freshener along with it, I like the contrast of the red against the green.

    I have a small dream catcher hanging from the rear view in my 52 Pontiac. My late aunt made it for me years ago. Thought it fit well in the old Poncho.

    Still looks neat and orderly. Not an obstruction but then I'm not a cop or an asshole. (most of the time)

    While in the pits of the 1981 Gatornationals, had a piston ring fly off and hit me in the leg as an engine was being torn down between rounds...came off a pink dragster with the name Cha-Cha on the body. Hung on mirror for years, now I can't find it.
  30. Old school Mobile Pegasus, doubles as my 60ft. meter. If it's wrapped around the mirror then I know I had a good 60ft time. You can see it heading around for the loop in the one 20150522_165544.jpg 11163110_10205236006277555_6590486833336778178_o-1.jpg
