Probably to reduce the amount of blind space from the mirrors. The
blind spot is greatest at the mirror, and expands out in a triangle to
infinity. On the door, this means you don't see someone who has his
fender about even with your door, unless you look out that window
(like you're supposed to, but I digress). If the mirror is mounted on
the front fender, and properly aligned with the side of the car,
you'll see that car in that same spot...

Why did the Japanese have the mirrors so far forward on the fenders?

This isn't a prank question...just wondering what was their rationale
for the forward mount rather than the door mounting common in the US
today.

Thanks
