The Wave
The Wave

Having been a previous long time Jeep owner ... I know the wave. You wave if your hands are full and you are on a divided highway, you just do.

Saw two earlier than mine models yesterday, a rare sighting in Medina County Texas, and neither waved. (I'm in an F55)

Having recently bought my Mini, BMW sends me about an email a week, one early on mentioned "the Wave."

So, BMW reminds the new owners to wave, who's gonna remind the long time owners to do the same?

I always wave if I see a MINI. Heck, if HDs can do it, why can't MINIs?

Come to OH...I'll be the MINI waving at YOU!

Or, if you are going Dragon-slaying in May, I'll wave atcha then, as well!

I wave. Now a days most don't wave back. But long ago all Mini drivers waved at each other. I think now that they are cheep used cars people buy them just because. Just remember if they don't wave you can hold up one finger it show them their number ONE! You can pick the finger.

The Wave
What's odd that is in South Texas everyone waves anyway, normally, if you wave, but I noticed many in Prius' and MINIs seem not too, while I do acknowledge that in some cars you can't see in so well because of the angle of the window.

Oh well, I'll keep saying MINI! when I see one and flashing the peace sign. ;-)

The wave is just stupid.

Wave at me and you are getting a one finger wave back if your lucky.

Dave, I'd wave at you just to see could you remember how to count to one.
Seven minutes to post this or else it become a serious threat.

PS: I always wave anyway. A hold over from my British roadster days back in the '60s when all the sports car folk waved.

Hell, as I've said before... I might just flash a single finger, just because!

If I have my sunroof open, I wave through it. That either gets a wave or a funny look.
