Re: Do you wave?

I never wave. If I have previously encountered somebody in a similar car I might smile, or even move my hand on the steering wheel as well, if it is a real friend, but that's the limit. I have spoken to friends in adjacent cars while waiting together at lights though.

I was once waved at by a very happy looking person in a similar car to mine and I intitially thought they must be a friend, so enthusiastic were they, so I had to ponder why I hadn't recognised them, and finally I realised that they either were fluffy happy people who recognised some sort of shared affinity because of our cars, or they were a bit bonkers.

Either way, by the time I had assimilated the possibilities the moment was over and we had passed.

Re: Do you wave?

I once spent a happy fortnight in the NE of Scotland, getting waved and flashed at seemingly constantly! I only found out towards the end of the holiday that I was driving an almost identical car to that of the local MP... -- Alex Salmond!

Imagine if Fiesta drivers waved at each other.
I drive a Mito too, and wave if I encounter another
But I drive so infrequently, and Mito's are so rare,
that I rarely get the opportunity...

However, my Panda Trekking Twinair (with sliding rear seat) looks
set to be extremely rare, going by how long delivery is taking
(ordered in January )

Re: Do you wave?

I used to drive a defender 90 and other (male only!) Kandy drivers waved without fail. I thought it was rather nice.
Not sure there will be enough of us panda 4x4 drivers around ever to meet let alone wave! Lol

Re: Do you wave?

I sometimes wave, but not in the way this thread means.

Re: Do you wave?

No Panda waving to report since my last post, sadly, but there are now quite a few examples in and around Norwich. One lady in a purple Panda saw me approaching the other day and as we passed I caught a glimpse of her pointing mine out to her companion... so we do notice each other

I saw that purple on in the snshine the other day, and I thought it looked fantastic.

But there was no eye contact, of course. This is Norfolk

Re: Do you wave?


You won't know me anyway, but I might smile a little if you look nice
