Default What's hanging from your rear view mirror?

FRFs:

Cruising around the forum earlier this week, I caught a glimpse of somebody's rear view mirror and couldn't help but notice how much, umm, stuff was hanging from it.

Anybody else testing the limits of their mirror adhesive? What's the max you can suspend from the assembly before it comes tumbling down? I'd show a pic of mine, but the only things that hang from it are Texas Motor Speedway parking passes!

I don't hang anything. A former girlfriend made something to hang, I turned it down.

To me stuff like that is a distraction, and just looks stupid.

I mostly see stupid high school kids doing that

That's my point! Almost anything there would keep me from seeing the road, traffic, pedestrians, etc., so I'm surprised how some folks live with lotsa stuff in the way like that...but that's just me.

Up until last week nothing. Now I have a New Car scent air freshener tree hanging from it. In my younger days I had a set of the ever-so-cliche fuzzy dice, lol.

Yeah! Now that's a good reason! So you don't use the muffs for that demon behind your cab?

3 expired parking passes, 2 expired air fresheners. I could probably get rid of all that.
