2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS: Small Mirrors, But At Least They Don't Fold
September 09, 2010
For a car with poor visibility, the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS has some unusually small side mirrors. Still, I figured they'd fold/swivel inwards (and outwards). They don't, and it's possible that their small size is part of the reason -- they're not as exposed as normal-sized mirrors.
I left the Camaro parked on this busy street yesterday during commute hours and half-expected a nice surprise when I returned. The combination of non-folding mirrors and wide stance (e aho laula?) had me wondering.
Fortunately the Camaro's mirror didn't suffer the same fate as the one of this longterm car, or this one. Unless there's clever shear-off hardware fastening it down, a drive-by clipping of the Camaro's mirror would likely jack up the sheetmetal of its door as well.
