    The Jeep folks have it and the bikers have it. I am officially starting the 'Tacoma' wave. If you see another Tacoma, you are OBLIGATED to wave. Anyone else in?

    Sometimes I see a heavily modded Taco, so they know that I'm an enthusiast also. :p

    I never get any waves or looks, and I see tons of modded tacos. I used to give a wave, but everybody just looked at me like I was crazy.

    Good Luck.... people never wave back.

    If you wanna get some waves in return, drive a Jeep, a Corvette, or a motorcycle.

    I have a jeep and everyone wants to wave, but in the taco, everyone just stares at you. Don't see this catching on.

    Not a chance. Where I live, I would estimate that 30 to 40% of the vehicles on the road are some kind of Toyota truck, My other car is an Outback, that's another 30 or 40% - not gonna wave that much.
