why not wave?

i have a buddy in a jeep that it doesnt matter who he passes in a jeep. they could be 16 or 60 they always wave. so on the way to nags head one day i ran a personal survey. i only had 1 of 8 tacomas wave to me. and i think the guy thought he knew me lol. why dont we wave to each other?

yeah, i just came from a Jeep to a Tacoma about a month ago and everytime i see a Wrangler i have to stop and remember that i dont drive a Jeep anymore. And every time i see a Tacoma i have to stop and remember that if i wave they will think im a weirdo. When i drive my girlfriend's BMW i always feel like i should wave to other BMWs....they aren't cool like that though. Man, the jeep wave has really screwed me up. Actually, it became kind of a PITA to wave to every Wrangler that drove by...there are a lot of them on the road. I'd be taking a sip of coffee and sure enough one would pass and wave and i would look like an a-hole for not waving.

On second thought I have noticed that the head nod works... But now that I have tint it's all pointless.

in the subaru community we all would wave, wrx's and sti's mostly. ive passed others in wrx's that literally have rolled the window down from the opposite side of the freeway to throw a wave. pretty cool to see other enthusiasts like that out there.

in tacomas, not so much... ive tried to nod or casually wave at a few that looked modded but got no response. oh well. ill keep trying.

It could be megan fox in a tacoma and i would acknowledge her if she gave a fist pump....

And what we're thinking is: "That's cool that that Tacoma lasted so long...I guess I made a good choice!!"

Personally, when I rode a motorcycle I always thought it was kind of annoying having to wave to all the other bikers, but that's probably just me. I like to ride to have time to think and enjoy the solitude, not to 'socialize' with people I don't even know. Yeah...I'm anti-social, so sue me.

I've always wondered this too. I had a Cherokee before and there seemed to be an understanding that if you drove a Cherokee with a lift or any other mods you waved. Maybe I can't wave until I get a lift and new tires?????

But on topic, i usually only wave to modded tacos since they are ore likely to be like us and actually wave back.

Yeah my friend drives a 08 wrx and one day some other guy in a subaru started waving and I ask my friend if he knew him and he said its just a common thing that they do.
