I wasn't sure why it looks like that either.... maybe i was just done changing lanes? The pic was in a rearview mirror, and ours are curved and kinda squish images.

Arent the rearview mirrors slightly convex? If thats the case then that might explain the "ghetto" lowered look...



I dunno, I'm just a pretty face round these here parts.

Through the bottom edge of the rear window? Light refraction.
