the subaru wave......

i've never heard of this one before but...
http://www.clubwrx.net/forums/everyd...-wrx-wave.html
apparently wrx owners try and wave to each other. With such a mainstream car i don't understand why they'd be upset, that's almost like a camry wave.

I remember the jeep wave 10-15 years ago, but that was when there weren't too many around and it was mainly a wrangler/cj thing, then the grand cherokee became the yuppie dream machine and it killed it.

waves should be reserved for vehicles that are more of a lifestyle choice (trans am, bikes, and hummerH3's, bahahaha, jk)

end rant.

I like the unskilled riders that cannot ride one handed to wave, so they beep their horn.

well when you're done thread jacking go to the my parents house where my bike is, rebuild my petcock, and then stop the gasoline from pouring out of every hole in my carbs. i've still got 21 days or so before i graduate up out this beast. just over a month and a half before my 25th birthday...late bloomer, what can i say.

I used to wave when I had my Evo, but that was like 4 years ago when it was pretty rare to see one.

Ok...I hate to admit this...ummm...but I had a Silver WRX STI and other STI owners would wave (and I waved back). And when I owned my Mini Copper S...other Mini owners would wave. I didn't quite understand it...but...whatever! LOL

Isn't it the freakin' weekend yet???

Pcar owners are supposed to wave at each other or flash their headlights but I've yet to have one return my gesture. No biggie, I wouldn't start a thread about it.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Scion owners used to do the wave...back before people really knew about them. They are a bit too common now, though I do catch some custom "boxes" that will see mine and wave. My dual sunroof setup gives me away since my box is pretty well known in the community.

I don't wave back, but instead turn on my undercarrage lights to achknowledge them.

ppl still do the Jeep wave, and I also get waved to in the GTO.

It's cool I guess. I try to keep my waive to two fingers pointing up in the air and no smile.

Smiling and waiving your wrist freely = gay.
