Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2014: Open car mirror supplier, want to locate

When at Chickasha a couple of years a go, there was a guy there selling open car rear view mirrors that mount on the windshield frame using the same threaded holes as the original brackets used. The arm was straight but tapered, about 6 or 7 inches long with a 4 or 5 inch mirror was, and was all aluminum or maybe stainless. I paid the guy cash and did not get a card or receipt. Does this sound vaguely familiar to anyone and do you have a contact for this gentleman? I would like to buy another. It makes for a good solid mount with little to no vibration. I believe the cost was about $55, both pieces.
Thanks

Sounds like Bill Bohlen's Antique T Motorsports.

I bought one from him on tBay and I like it.
Best regards.

That's the guy, all right. He also has them in brass for a few more bucks. They are very nice and don't vibrate the way most others do.

That's the one!

Those are gorgeous mirrors!
Unfortunately on a touring car with the top up you won't be able to see much more than the rear of the car.
I bought a pair of these (wow they're getting pricey) and have to have them fully extended to see what's behind me.
Yes they vibrate some but I'd rather have a shaky image of what's going on behind my car than nothing at all.

I have one of the antique motorsports mirrors on my truck that was on my touring and I think it is great. Lots of view and looks good. Thanks for this post, I bought mine off ebay and didn't have any way to buy another.
