Other camaro owners around here usually don't wave or acknowledge I have a camaro either because they're too busy trying to race everyone else... n a v6, not hating on a v6 now but its true

If I see another Camaro in enough time, I'll switch from my halos (because I'm so use to turning them on every time I get in) to DRLs and then back. Or give them a peace sign from the top of my steering wheel.

I usually don't have time but, when I do, I flash 'em with the brights. Occasionally get flashed back.

Same here I wave to all Camaro generations and yeah usually the older Gen.'s will wave back and 99.9% of the time the 5th Gen.'s don't.
Even If I am right next to them, they are obviously trying NOT to not look my way even with my cam shaking their car.
But still I wave regardless.

I usually give a thumbs up... have had a girl in a camaro actually respond at a light and talk a bit, but no one else.

Seems like others want to race me at lights a lot though.

A simple wave, and not just for a Camaro. I will give a wave to any really nice car.

Just a look their way and a nod if they're looking. Most just seem to be oblivious.

I wave at all Camaros. unless it is obvious that the car isn't well cared for.

It is rare that people are paying attention or wave back.

I knew you had to be a biker when I stumbled onto the post. It's not been my experience that anyone else gives a nod like we bikers do.

how in the world do you guys rev back and forth..when I see one coming my way a simple wave is all I do...and mostly get a simple nod or wave back...if hes coming toward me how am I going to hear him rev.Maybe in traffic going the same way, I seem to get a lot of responses with just a wave

To kind of answer these, I don't feel that I am magically fall into some club because I'm driving a Camaro and so is the other guy. I don't think that everyone that drives a 5th Gen is a car person. You know it's a new car, so some people buy it just for transportation as opposed to a truck or a honda or a Ford. So I don't wave at anyone unless I know them. If someone waves at me I'll holler at them, even roll down my window in case we are in traffic together. I wouldn't mind being friendly to all Camaro drivers, but there are a lot of 5th Gens near me, near campus, that are college age kids, most of them drive V6's, and they don't give a crap about car culture. I kind of got turned off on the whole, you drive one, I drive one because they just didn't respond to me early on. But when I go to a car show or a club meet or the drag strip in the area things change 100%, but at that point I know, Camaro or something different, that I'm around car people.

So wave at me, I'll wave back, but I'm not waiving at them just to be ignored

ps, I have found no matter what generation that the older the driver usually the friendlier they are. The guys and gals that were around for the first muscle car era and now have a 5th Gen are usually the ones that wave in traffic around here
