How do you speak to other Camaros on the road?

I dont know if its just me, but when I'm on the interstate everytime I see a Camaro on the opposite side I flash my high beams to acknowlege them. Only a handful of times has another driver picked up on it and been able to signal back; especially when passing at 80+ mph. lol

I ride motorbikes as well, and this reminds of how we signal our two fingers to each other in passing. (Two fingers for two wheel riders)

I'm just curious....

If I'm paying attention I flash my lights. A lot of times others will flash their lights at me but sometimes it takes a minute for me to process that and I miss the flash back

Is flashing the lights the official hello? Have been wandering about this. I usually wave and rev the engine.

I don't do anyone unless I know them. When I'm in my Chevy truck I don't wave to every person I pass that's driving another Chevy truck. So why would I wave to every camaro driver. How do I know it isn't a scumbag or terrorist as was proven this week to own a 5th gen.

I usually talk to myself "oh, theres one, that is nice", "oh look at that one, apparently they could give a rats butt about how it looks because it appears to have never seen a washing in over a year".

For those that appear to be stock, I wave. For those with obvious mods, I flash my lights.

Used to be, when someone flashed their headlights it meant a LEO ahead, so I'd slow down.

I usually wave, but the only people who seem to wave back are 3rd and 4th gen owners... For whatever reason 5th gen owners just don't appear to be as friendly.

I usually give a thumbs up. I may or may not still flash highs to signal for a LEO ahead. (illegal in a lot of areas now).

I generally don't wave or flash my lights unless its one of the Camaro owners I know. To many on the road near me that just treat them as cars.

Although it's tricky to do. I slap my ass in hopes they will slap theirs. I'm still a new owner (about 3 weeks now), so maybe I'm going about it the wrong way?
