Unfortunately, driving home something took out my side mirror on the car, either a bird or perhaps something not secured to a truck ahead on the highway where 70mph is legal speed, and I have to go get repair quotes today.

Six or five months ago, someone knocked the driver’s side mirror on my 1998 S-10 pickup truck off while it was parked in a supermarket parking lot. The dealer wanted something like $235.00 to replace it. I found a place online that sold me a replacement mirror for $57.00 and, with a YouTube video, I replaced it myself. A few weeks ago, someone knocked the other side view mirror off and I found an even cheaper replacement ($27.99 plus S & H - free shipping on orders over $50). If you have an older vehicle, you might post on the Fool’s Buying and Maintaining a Car Board (See; http://boards.fool.com/buying-and-maintaining-a-car-100143.a...) about replacing the mirror yourself.

C.J.V. - lots of good advise & friendly folk there, yes
