I drive a Jeep Wrangler as my everyday car. Some kind of rule about Jeep owners waving when they meet on the road. Kinda cool.
You missed the best part of your link...
Same reason Harley riders, and motorcyclists in general, all wave.
If you drive a pickup up north everyone waves. They want to make friends with anyone who might be able to pull them out should the need arise. At least that's the theory.
Corvette owners too
Because we're awesome!
When I travel to Tennessee, everyone gives a friendly 1 finger off the steering wheel wave as you pass on country roads, regardless of vehicle. Last years trip I noticed quite a few were raising all fingers. Maybe the protocol changed since my last trip, or maybe these were vacationers not familiar with the exact protocol?? (We travel there once a year, Byrdstown, TN, for a houseboat vacation). By the way, if anyone wants to swap Sea Rays for a week and you keep your boat on Dale Hollow Lake, let me know!
I always wave at other Corvettes when I’m driving mine.
“Save The Wave”
When I drive my 68 GTO and encounter another 60’s muscle car it’s sometimes a wave, but more often a nod and thumbs up are exchanged.
I wave at other vehicles sometimes when I’m behind the wheel of my daily driver too, but that’s usually the single finger version and generally directed at yellow cab drivers in Manhattan when I’m blocking them from cutting in front of me in traffic. Kind of a tradition here in NY. Most of them don’t speak English so it’s kind of a universal language we use with them to get our point across.....
Challenger owned were the same way at first but with over 1/2 a million on the road now not so much anymore.
I guess it evolves. For years I drove a Grand Cherokee (5 or 6) of them. A few Jeep waves, maybe 10-20% (those that were unsure of the protocol I guess).
Then I switched to a Wrangler (much more fun) - wave % is in the high 90's.
That is most likely based the perceptions of the different vehicles. The Cherokee just lacks the "cool" factor that the Wrangler has. In motor vehicles it is all based on the cool factor...
All boats have a cool factor to most other boaters...
Can any wrangler owners confirm this.........
"They don't wave to Jeeps with square headlights"
No wave for you ....if your a fisherman tied to a buoy in a channel or sitting in the middle of a channel fishing... Especially if you have square headlights..
We have a special one finger wave for those occasions...
I always slow down for the fisherman in 20-24’ boats near the bridge just because a 3’ wake is no fun and you never know when someone is going to pop up on the other side of the bridge. On the way home, nearing dusk, but still light out? Just head right on through at normal speed. Normally, they have gone home by then and I see very few fishing boats out at that time, but if they are still fishing at that point, they can handle my wake.
I wave to get an acknowledgment that the other boater sees me and knows I am there. The friendly factor is second.
When there were more XK-Es on the road, we would always exchange hi beam flashes.
Oh I don't know... You sure that wasn't just an electrical problem?
Joseph Lucas - THE PRINCE OF DARKNESS!! LOL. Somewhere I posted my experiences of flying with old Joe at night off the ship.
Actually, my two E-types were not too bad ('69 & '73), I think the earlier ones were though! My '57 XK-140MC was rewired when it was restored.
