How bout a wave?

Since i was young my dad always had a vette, we'd drive to where ever and when ever another vette passed us we would wave to each other. It was a cool thing to acknowledge one another. I have a 67rs and when I'm driving it, it doesn't matter whether its a chevy, ford,or dodge but the guys driving 50's 60's and 70's muscle cars or classics we always give a wave. Harley guys you always see them give a low wave. Now when I drive my 2010 ss and pass another 5th gen it would be nice to see that wave too, I wave to every camaro I see how bout anybody else? Lets get this going and start waving!

Response to the wave isn't good in my area. I actually get a lot of waves from Challenger drivers and anyone in a classic, like Novas, Chevelles, Vettes, etc.

And by the way, your '67 is beautiful!!

Love your 67. I try to wave when I'm in my camaro but rarely get a response. But when I flash my lights I usually get a honk or the same back.

EVERY camaro around here waves. I even wave at Mustangs and Challengers and anything else I think is cool and I usually get a wave back from the pony cars.

You should try the jeep wave, I hear it works better? lol j/k that was a different "wave" post. As ever, if I see you in time, I will wave or flash my hibeams at you. If you don't wave back I will assume you didn't see me unless you are the snobby guy who pointedly won't wave to other Camaros!
We're generally friendly folk here in WA, we wave a lot.

Around here Camaro drivers rarely wave. Jeep Wrangler drivers wave like crazy!

The wave

I generally flash my lights. I used to wave but I could never see if anyone was waving back. My eye sight just ain't what it use to be,

I always wave to other Camaros. I have a 1973 CJ5 (an old Jeep Wrangler for those non Jeep guys) that I always wave to other Jeep when I am driving.

I'm in CT too, and I wave, but I hear what you're saying, on a harley you can definitely expect a wave from another bike, in the camaro not so much, maybe 3 out of 10 at best.

Don't worry, if I see you (or anyone else) in CT I'll wave.

You must remember that a lot of people who buy 5th Gen Camaros nowadays have no clue. I gave up waving, thumbs upping and headlight flashing over a year ago.

I wave or flash the lights. I usually get a response. The first time it happened to me, he saw me first and really must have been excited. We were on a 4 lane divided highway going opposite directions. He was frantically flashing and waving. This was shortly after the vert came out.

I always shoot a peace sign at other Camaros on the road. Most of the time I get a wave back if they see me.

Sometimes I wave at Mustangs, Challengers, and Vettes. I get a wave back now and then.

I always flash my high beams at other Camaros. When I got it in 09 it was rare to see em anywhere around here but when I did we always waved. Now it's hit or miss. I've yet to ever have a vert flash back at me. But it's okay cause I don't like em either! :p

Ill usually wave back if someone waves to me, or a head nod or thumbs up or somthing, but I dont really care if anyone waves to me or not. Never cared about it on my bikes either.
