    Love the mirrors

    I understand the mirrors eliminate the blind spot, but how do you adjust them while you are driving. Is there a control inside the car?

    no, the mirrors on the hood can only be adjusted, when you're not driving...
    you losen the screw and then you can turn them, wehn it's alright with you, you can tighten the screw...

    they are original ones from the 70s...

    It's the ONLY automatic I own, as you can see from my signature. I was willing to buy this one, in spite of its automatic, because it's ALL original, including paint and interior, totally stock and completely documented from the day it was first purchased. 26K miles when purchased several years ago, 34K now.

    Not to brag too much and while we're still on the subject of completely stock cars, here's my 1300 mile '75 Ascona . . . stored for 28 years by original dealer in Ohio, first registered by me, the original owner, in August 2003, EVERYTHING is original except battery.
