    We need a signal

    So have you ever noticed that when 2 motorcycle riders cross paths, they put their left hand down and do the peace sign? Well whenever I crossed paths with another T/A driver I threw the peace sign out the window and he looked at me like I was crazy. I think when we see eachother we should do something to say hey or nice car without having to chase down the other driver, and we all know a T/A isn't easy to catch haha. What do you guys and gals think?

    I always wave at other TA guys, and so far they've always waved back. When I pull up next to one at a light, I've always chit-chatted for a moment. I've never been snubbed by another TA guy. Now there is one TA woman around here that has never once looked me in the eye...

    didnt a thread like this pop up awhile back and i could have sworn we agreed to just use the peace sign out the window/ttops if you have them off on that particular day could be wrong though

    I know I always throw out the peace sign if a happen upon another T/A while in mine and they have always given me one back along with a rev so I just figured word had got around

    I usually give a wave or a thumbs up, but quite honestly there are not a lot of 4th gens running around our area. The ones that I do see on a regular basis have been beat into the ground for the most part.

    I just look at the guy/gal in any ls1 give a bow of my head & a quick rev.

    LoL also I go by the better the car looks the longer I look. Sometimes I end up stopping traffic just so I can see it drive off in my side mirrors, but I say oh well let em get mad!!! Seeing our cars all nice, garage keep shiny, & rumbling by is rare thing. Especially in Philly!!!

    Oh, btw Idk about where you guys may live butt "F*^k" the 5th gen camaro guys. Don't even wave to them C word's!! My REASON- whenever I do, they all look at me like I'm some sort of asshole and no good. I guess, bc I drive the gen be4 them idk. Little do they know my ls1 would not just beat them, but rape them like a ravaged gorilla with a double sided dildo if we were to line up at the light. (Sry for the rant, but I feel better now!)
    The sound of your piss hitting the urinal.......yea it sounds feminine!

    There is another red WS6 around here that I see often. He and I exchange waves and chit-chat at lights often. There is a silver WS6 also, but he has dark windows and they and the tops are always up, so I have never seen him. But he revs whenever he passes me, and his car sounds waaaaay badder than mine. Then there's the white Formula WS6 driven by the blonde woman that never even looks at me... Those are the 3 Firebirds in my area that I see all the time. There's also a red SS owned by a guy that works in a car shop down the street. His also sounds bad-ass, but it should given that he is apparently a mechanic!

    I definately flash a peace sign or wave and ANY firebird/TA and generally do to camaros, too.
    But I agree new camaro owners either don't get it or are arrogant thinking they are better or whatever.
    I'd take my 02 TA ANYDAY over a new camaro. I like them but not better than my TA.
