I hate it when..

I see a fellow enthusiast, no matter the type of car, who has obviously modded their car and taken it in a direction of which I approve of, so I give them a thumbs up, a nod, wave, whatever, and they return my gesture with..



...nothing...







I'm going out of my way to tell you that I like your car. And you can't even wave back, or even acknowledge the fact that someone else appreciates the work you've put into your car? Da fuq? Give me your keys. You're fired.

Yup been there before. Pisses me off too when they give you that look...


I've also been the recipient of that too. Had a older gentleman yell at me going down the road telling "that's a nice hot rod ford you have there". I've also had a guy in a ZX2 ask me if my car was a SVT, what made my friend bust up laughing was how nonchalant I said back "Na I beat SVT's" lol

Yep, me to, just gave a guy in a SRT8 Challenger the other day a thumbs up and he gave me a wave. A lot of times they don't though.

Well some people arent expecting the wave... They could be thinking, do I know this person, is there something wrong with my car, did I cut them off, why are they gesturing at me? It might just take them a second to comprehend.

who hasn't been caught off guard and then later realized it was just them being cool and giving you some props.

Then some people are just d-bags lol...so who knows

You probably encountered a really bad driver who is used to getting all sorts of gestures from other people on the road.

I always laugh when one of those gazillion mustang drivers think I got something going on when I drive my 06 focus with the SAP and insist on trying to race me. At least I get noticed but I always gesture back.
