Okay you asked for it.....the side view on my 70 was not in great shape, but mirror was good. Except it moved too easily.
When no one was looking, I took a sharp punch, a big screw driver handle, and made a few dings where the mirror swivel on the pivot ball. Only made enuff so that when I adjusted the mirror, the dings gives enuff friction to hold it in place...I have a new mirror whenever I decide to put it on, but this seemd to have worked well enuff.
I bought one new in the GM box for my 69 at a swap meet at one of the N.C.O.A. "Chevelle Showdown" shows and it would fall down every few blocks of driving the car.
I finally put my old one back on and gave it away. I should have tried DG's trick I guess

DG, that sounds like a good idea. Judging by the responses to this, it seems to be a common problem. And I always thought everything tended to get stiffer with age. Well, almost everything.
