    They're always oblivious, I've stopped trying to acknowledge other X owners on the road.

    Haha the majority of Civic buyers don't know what their car looks like lol.

    I'd think that if you were one of "those owners", a stranger on the highway honking and frantically waving at you would cause distress lol.

    Also people are generally bitchier now lol

    I once honked and followed this one lady about 4 blocks before she finally pulled over and shouted "WHAT THE FUCK IS YOUR PROBLEM???" only when I told her she had two flat tires did she soften up and thanked me for letting her know.

    Isn't that the damn truth. I use to wave, and I would always get the "do I know you?" look. :dunno:

    I saw someone in a white EX-T/EX-L today, gave a friendly flash of the brights and a wave, dude flips me off. Fine, fuck you too bud, we're no longer penpals. :dunno:

    People literally don't know what car they drive. Or don't care.

    And yeah, there's a lot more bitchiness/general rudeness on the road vs. 3-5 years ago. Dunno why, but something's changed.

    Ok, this is a topic that *was* very popular when MINI Coopers were the new thing. Those are easy to recognize. When the second generation came out, people on the forums were discussing how nobody waved anymore. Now it's third generation, and everyone has one now.

    Even I, a car nut, has trouble recognizing a new Civic. You can't expect regular folks, no matter the age, to be waving to each other. It ain't gonna happen! :doh:

    When I drive my 1969 Chevy pickup, that's a different story when another one is nearby. :truck: If you crave getting waves, change vehicles.

    Good point.

    Can I still hope to have a hottie with a new Civic wave back if I flash her? We'd both turn around, ogle each other while batting our eyelids seductively, race each other back to my place to Netflix and Chill, and eventually get married to Jodeci?

    Then me and my Civic SO would have babies, get the single family house with the white picket fence, wave "Hi!" to our neighbors while getting the newspaper in our robes every morning, and live happily ever after.

    "Oh, how'd you guys meet?"

    "We flashed each other one day - it was true love from then on out!"

    I was freeway friends with a blue LX civic and we drove a good portion of my commute together. My job then changed my shift and I no longer have him as a freeway friend and other civic owners don't seem interested :cry:

    It's nothing to do with age, to most drivers a car is just transportation and they could care less about waving. The first I remember of waving was with VW bug owners in the sixties, everyone waved.
    Motorcyclists all wave but after about 50 years of that I don't wave back any more. I don't bother looking for civics with all cars looking the same now and I won't return your wave.

    I still have my CR-Z, and every time I come across another one on the streets we are both excited to see it and wave/smile. It's stark contrast to the massive sales the civic has.

    I would wave in that case as well. I ride vintage motorcycles and we always wave at each other and in some cases stop and chat.
