Does it bother you when someone doesn't wave back?

Ok, I understand that sometimes you don't see a corvette driving down the road. But this morning as I am cruising into work, down a nice long stretch of highway, I pass 8 Vettes in a pack. Not one wave from any of them! Am I the only one who hates that?????? :WTF

some guys are pre-occupied, I guess.

kind of pizzes me off, that they don't wave or are not even paying attention to the road.

Hey, I don't let it bother me. If they wave back, great - if not, well, that's too bad but I don't lose any sleep over it. Just don't be that guy.

Save the Wave!

That happens man. Don't let it discourage you from showing brotherly love and/or appreciation for a cool car.

I'll wave.:buhbye:

When I wave I'm looking for other people that enjoy there car. If they don't wave back I know I found some one that just has money and a mode of transportation...:huh:

I'm a motorcyclist and I always wave to motorcycle officers out there. Never seen one return the wave in 15 years of riding, but it doesn't stop me. I assume they're under some kind of standing orders.

I ride a KTM 950 adventure touring bike. When I wave to other motorcyclists, most all of them wave back, except for guys on Harleys. Maybe one out of ten of them wave back, if that. Who's to blame them? They spent nearly $25,000 at the Harley dealership to buy a perfectly good "tough guy who rebels against conformity" image, and they'll be damned if they'll throw it all away waving back at some schmoe on a different bike.

So I have a plan to help them out. One of these days I'm going to rent a Ronald McDonald suit with the biggest red afro and most ginormous floppy shoes I can find, then rent a huge black Fat Boy from Laidlaw's for a day. Then I'll go all over L.A. County, hitting all the biker roads and frantically wave to *everyone* like I just won gold at the Very Special Olympics.

:rolling: That would be hilarious!!

I wave at all Vettes, probably get about a 40% return. I had a guy in a C5 Vert throw a big wave from across the interstate yesterday (with construction between us).

8 vettes

8 vettes and not a wave. That is unacceptable :spanked:
I get pissed, but i have no idea why. Its funny though, because sometimes i get pissed then i realize i am not driving the vette.:thud:

When I wave, I try to get my arm outside the side window. That usually draws their attention. Some times I will roll the headlights up and down. I know they think I am nuts but hey I got them to look!!!!!!

Art :crazy: :laughing:

Anybody ever flash their brights in place of the wave? I was driving in South Denver today (near Parker) and I was on the cellphone, windows were up. A Silver C6 drives by the opposite way and sticks out his hand to wave... I couldn't get the windows down fast enough so I flashed my brights twice.

I hope this is a fair substitute. I feel bad for missing the wave (first one I've missed) but I think he got the point.

I wave whenever I can. I know that 1/2 won't wave, but the other half will. It's like that glass of whiskey is half full, or half empty, but I'm gonna drink it either way :cheers:

OK... I really hate to have this viewpoint, but I've had my Vette for two whole weeks now, and I wave at every other one I see, what I notice is that the guys wave back and the gals are oblivious.:huh:

In my area, I've noticed the wave is slowly going away....I'll wave, but less than half ever wave back. I don't worry about it or lose any sleep though, I'm too busy enjoying my ride. :thumbsup:
