1991 Acura NSX: Funhouse Mirror

February 21, 2012


There I was driving down Santa Monica Boulevard. I check my mirror and see what looks like a Mahindra pickup truck. But no, I was mistaken, it was just a regular old Toyota.

The driver-side mirror has a little distortion in it; just near the top. It stretches images vertically, making some cars look like they have goofy-large greenhouses.

Now, I can see the use of condensing images horizontally, giving you a more expansive view of what's next to you, but vertically stretched? And near the top? Nope, I think this is just a flaw, and a minor one, at that. The passenger-side mirror doesn't distort things like this.
