Do you wave at other SVTs or get waved at?

Do you try to get other SVTs attention,and do you get a response back?

For example, I have seen probably 5 SVTs driving in close proximity to me and have tried to wave or just say "Hi" but am ignored, even one I saw at a gas station across from when I was filling up. The only people that have actually acknowledged the car has been on reg ZX3 and a nice EG hatch. Not saying I demand attention but I thought this was a tight knit community .

Post your stories up!

Yea I always get a good response! there's an older dude w/ black SVTzx5 who owns the local travellodge and always nods Another EAP comp orange always chucks the deuce, and a chick wit a red svt lives next to my apartments. Recently though I met a dude with a nice svt jrsc, body kit & everything; we stopped each other downtown and talked a while I still want that ride one thing i have noticed though is the ST's don't acknowledge as much but for some reason i've seen a lot more chicks in those round town thers also a new 09 with dark argent svt 17's which looks pretty damn good...

I have never seen one on the road to wave at, got a wave from a zx3 owner when I drove past him while he was at a wendys drive through. Got a stare down from another modified Zx3 while he was turning at a light, lol guy looked like he crapped his pants when he finally noticed me...

i wave to all the SVTF's i see on the road, but haven't received any waves in return. i do see a lot of old people in SVTF's around my area, so maybe thats why they don't wave. whatever, ill just keep waving.

I've had the SVTF for almost two years now and have NEVER been acknowledged by another SVTF driver - in spite of my always flashing hello (never thought to wave, though...).

Most of the time, however, they don't seem to even notice me - dunno if they even realize how special their car is (for example, I complemented a group of people as they got into their Sonic Blue ZX5 in front of a coffee shop last fall, and they responded as if I were psycho SVT-stalker dude).

Whatever. I've definitely gotten plenty of positive comments from drivers of other models of car...
