    They do that in most rural areas, when i go up to visit my grandparents in northern WI everyone waves as you go by. I think its because everyone is so bored there like theres a person wave at em.

    I'll through a wave also. But surprisingly theres not too many other birds around here. Some that I have seen are people drivin V6's and are completely oblivious.

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    I go bonkers. I don't know why, i'm driving the same damn car, but I still wave/honk/flash stare like i've never seen one before. these cars are rolling art if you ask me.

    My gf and I went to the mountains and on the way back I started thinking about this because as I saw every motorcycle pass they would do a low wave. So I asked her why other groups don't do it. So I started waving at all Pontiacs. I got weird looks from Montanas, Vibes, Sunfires and Bonnevilles.

    Exactly. We've had jeeps for years and still do,,,got so sick of the Jeep wave. I would wave back because I'm a nice guy,,,but I never initiated it. Funny though, it was big in Ohio but I don't see any Jeep waves out here in AZ,,,and I see more of them too Must be a territorial thing.

    Then years back we bought a 71 vette,,,,my wife drove it to work on nice days. Her first day out she came home and said,,,"guess what,,,,there is a vette wave too"..... I said great,,,,another car that has a wave

    Then there are the classic cars that wave when I'm driving one, but I have never seen a 4th gen wave at all, and we've driven them for years.
    Honestly though they just don't jump out at me in traffic much so I'm not paying much attention either.

    i know exactly what you mean, cuz you can hear what your car sounds like and what it looks like driving by and stuff... i've only let this happen once though.

    I agree. I was looking at my car today and even dirty its still look great. These cars are trully one of a kind. If you dont want to wave just flash your lights. I think its great idea and we should do it if you want to.

    I rarely see other cars like mine around here. I can think of four. Two gorgeous WS6's and one fire engine red V-6 with a WS6 hood and cheap looking flames. I havent seen them while driving though. Im kinda glad though that I dont see many cars like mine, it makes people stare in awe.

    OMG, i love seeing my car in motion. I watch my AX vids all the time. It looks so bad ass in motion. Ya, one time my buddy and I switched cars and hit the highway taking turns going past eachother in 3/4th gears so we could hear what the rest of traffic does. That was fuckin bad ass.

    I usually give the "V" to other F-Body's. If it's a fellow WS6, they get a thumbs up and a shit eating grin. As for the Mustangs, I like the aforementioned, but I usually give them a view of my exhaust!!!

    the actual firebird on the licence plate cover or on the vintage trans am hoods is kindof shaped like a' V' the way the wings spead at the top and the bird gets pointed at the bottom, sortof.
