A lot of those mirrors look really good... I'm still debating mine, whether to go fender or door mount, chrome or paint, round or rectangular... I've got a mirror off an old VW Bus that I'm considering mounting in the stock antenna location, on the driver's side fender. It's got a pretty good viewing area, so as long as the A-pillar doesn't block too much of the view I'll go for it.
As far as the passenger's side mirror goes... My first car didn't have one, and neither did the Datsun when I first got it, so I'm not sure if I'll install one on the door. I am planning on installing a "look-down" mirror off of a semi-truck on the front-right corner of the car. It's a rectangular mirror about the size of a book with a convex lens... if I mount it properly, I should be able to see most of the ground along the front and side of the truck. It'll make it a hell of a lot easier to park without hitting anything or curbing the wheels/tires, and it should look pretty cool if I do it right.
