Waving is a jeep thing and it's built in the culture and didn't happen overnight.

A few weeks ago a nice surprise from a RS owner. I see him coming up on my left. I can see his grill so I know it is a RS. He slows and is slightly behind.. Then as he passes he waves.. I waved.. It was really nice of him to wave at a fellow hot hatch Focus owner.

I always waive or give a thumbs up, in my titanium focus, if I see an ST along side me. I often times will see them checking my car out as well, since I always keep it freshly spray detailed & looking sharp.

I wave at other focuses I see as well. For a while, on my commute home, I would see my focus twin. Pretty sure it was the same year. It was also the same color and it looked like we both had the same plain steel winter rims and snow tires.

He waved. I waved. He was always at a side road waiting to pull on and eventually would do his best to get behind me. Once he pulled up next to me once the road became 4 lane. Havent seen him since

I am tired of other ST owners just refusing to respond.
Used to be anyone with the same car, let alone same color would wave and honk like crazy, big smiles...
Now, nothing.
I do not know why...
Maybe it is me?
Because the auto market is dominated by hipsters and people that 9nly see cars as point A to B drivers. I wave to any focus driver.

I noticed a few months ago there seems to be this thing going on around here where people are FOCUSed on the convoy thing on the freeways.

It seems the nod is more popular.

Much more with the Jeep and the vintage VW.

I already have to wave while driving the Corvette. I get strange looks from some owners cause they don't understand it.

Focus ST owners around here are too plentiful (more so than I think Corvettes) and some of them look like they bought the car cause it was economical and went faster. I'm sure if I waved at them they'd be even more confused than the Corvette drivers.

I was driving locally when I had my old striped loud ass Se Sport just minding my own business and I heard a blowoff valve behind me. I look in my mirror and it was a tangerine scream ST. I sped up to give him room to get next to me so we could talk. We're sitting next to eachother at a light, we roll our windows down and he says "What is that?" I said "It's a Focus (lol)". He laughs and says well yeah obviously but I haven't seen one like that. I explained what it was, that it was a stick and I had just done a few things to it etc. We exchanged compliments, tooled around for a minute and went our own ways. I will generally try to get the attention of any person seemingly interested who had an SVT, standard tran Focus, or modded focus. I'll usually nod to any WRX/STI/GTI drivers as well. I was driving the work truck and have givven the thumbs up to SVT foci who actually responded. Hell, I have gotten love from Velostar drivers.
