The little Fiat 126, although air-cooled, has a heater quite capable of de-misting the back window. Nevertheless, Alfred Woolf ensured that the car I am testing was provided with a Tonic external driving mirror, to make rearward vision doubly-sure. This simply clips to the driver’s door and is a most useful adjunct to any 126 driver. Tonic make a big range of accessories for Fiat cars, whose owners will find much of interest in their comprehensive catalogue. Their address is: Tone Accessories International, 35 Wake’s Way, Mitcham, Surrey.
An interior rear-view mirror made to EEC safety standards and provided with winkerrepeaters is made by Mirrocator, 125 Furtherwick Road, Canvey Island, Essex. It is priced at £5.95 inclusive of VAT, postage and packing. The winker lights are in the driver’s constant vision and are dimmed according to prevailing light conditions so as not to dazzle.—W.B.
