No secret wave?

I have had my car since April and when I see a Camaro 5th Gen out on the road, I always try to pull up to them and wave with a peace sign or something, but every single time I get a look that says, " Lady you are weird." Isn't there a secret wave or something? Back in the day my dad always gave a nod to his fellow Corvette owners. Am I missing something?

Bummed out in Colorado,
Michelle

I'm going to go over this one more time. See, Gen 5 guys all need to hold up all five fingers for the 5th gen, that's our secret wave. Then Gen 4 guys hold up four fingers and so forth. It only gets confusing when we get the Gen 1 guys, that can misinterpreted

My experience, if the camaro is modded then 9 out of 10 times Ill get a wave back. If its stock I almost never get a wave back. When I was in Kansas a good bit would wave back, normally the same people though. Now that Im back in Ohio I get more waves from Corvettes then I do Camaros.

I actually just went for a cruise on the 4th of July with a few buddies and their Z06 Corvettes. I noticed the same thing. Every single Vette that we passed waved, while I hardly ever even get a 2nd look if I pass a fellow Camaro. Kind of a bummer.

Nothing like giving that "your #1" wave . I normally give the "high five" to Gen5's I see.

I find that most people are busy playing with their cell phones or their radio and aren't paying attention. Some catch my wave others don't.

Seems like these "wave" threads keep coming up every couple months or so. Nothing really changes... so yeah, wave if you want, I'll wave back...if I see you waving at me... better yet, flash your lights. Chances are, I can't see through your tint.

No secret wave.

No secret handshake.
No secret LS3 club.

I almost always flash my Halos and give a wave, seems like I've been getting more of a response lately.

The Camaro owners around here have their head up their ass as far as acknowledging another another Camaro driver...

I have waved, flashed my lights, swerved back and forth...and nothing.

Apparantely they are not on this forum...

I like to wave and acknowledge another Camaro driver, but then again, I can see other Camaros on the street, when they can't.

PS...Why is Camaro showing up as misspelled on a Camaro forum?
