Funny thing is I was just talking to my Dad this past weekend about how I wave at Tacoma drivers and how they almost always wave back. (we passed one and he asked if I knew him, this lead to our discussion...)
It's a Southern thing. I grew up watching my dad wave to other trucks as we passed them on the highway. When I began driving, I inherited it. I still wave at other trucks when I pass them. You just don't see it up North.

I would saw ur right but up here in northern VT everyone waves to everyone for the most part (farming and such community). Especially with trucks!

I say we start the taco chop. A one handed straight chop wave to show how gay we all are. haha no offense to ass bandits i meant gay in the "happy" way.

Why? Because most of us don't have rainbow stickers on our trucks.

Women driving trucks are kind of cool. Definitely will start waving to other TACOs to see what happens. Especially the women.
