Do you wave to other Silverado/Sierra drivers?

Never.

 

I wave back to Corvette drivers (when I am driving my Vette)...I hate when I spot one coming at me as I know I am going to have to wave.

 

I truly hate waving to a motorcycle rider...but I do it if they do it first. I just want to enjoy my ride and I here comes a bike every other minute heading towards me, ugh.

I own several motorcycles and a Jeep but I quit waving years ago, just gets old after a while. If I waved at every GM truck I passed then I might as well just leave my hand hanging out the window because every other vehicle is a Silverado or Sierra in my neck of the woods.

No, the wave as someone mentioned earlier is usually reserved for niche vehicles. I can understand Jeeps, motorcycles and Corvettes. Our trucks while nice are not that unique, plus with over a million Silverado/Sierra's on the road, the waving would get out of hand. I'm all for being friendly towards other people so waving itself isn't the thing if you just want to greet everyone you encounter but it comes off as fanboy-ism when people try to do the wave to drivers of similar vehicles. I'm sure there are people who drive Camry's and Accords who wave. It seems that people are trytting to extend it to all vehicles these days in fact Tacoma drivers were doing the wave too for awhile when I had my last truck. At that point it just comes off as silly.

Where I'm from (Al) it seems that people who have noticeable modifications are more likely to acknowledge each other. I usually get waves from guys in leveled/lifted chevys/sierras, and I will wave back. I look at it sort of like a head nod. You don't know them well enough to stop and shake their hand, but you like and respect what they've done to their truck.

hahaha!

same here. I went to the boat ramp on Jul 4... at least more than 90% of the lot was gm. My 96 was the oldest... making the most unique noises.

A yacht cub and restaurant.. I could only guess i was the poor boy with an "old" chevy.

 

does anybody remember a 73 being on the road in 93? also a 20 year gap.. nobody called truck stuff old. Bent crabbing, 5 sifferent planels.. did not matter. I also found stickers and back window murals are all but gone today too.

 

I keep a hurst sticker there.. because I have one, the shift base the whole thing installed. I must be getting old.

 

I was behind a parade of harleys once, and i do not like harleys. I have veterans plates, and that is as friendly as harley people get. Those never waved to me before Veteran plates.

my subaru is headed for 30. May as well be a gangsta in the subaru. Nobody cares.

I feel like most drivers wouldn't even recognize their same car/truck coming from the other direction lol, assuming they are even bothering to pay attention to that.

 

I don't wave and haven't noticed people wave at me, however I do notice other cars/trucks and say to myself, that's a good lookin truck. Maybe I'm goin crazy!

Waving is a sign of weakness in Massachusetts. :lol:

 

Too many people to wave to anyway, unless I'm in my own town.

I did notice driving my 1990 K5 Jimmy yesterday people were paying attention and talking to me or waving. But it's unique I guess... and it's not rotten thus making unique lol.

Why would you drive down the highway/street constantly waving to random people? That doesn't even make sense to me, or maybe I'm missing something?

With the terrible, violent, lawless climate in todays society, something as simple as waving to the wrong person may actually cause you some unwanted trouble, sad but true. Certain people may see it wrong, be having a road rage episode and assume you gave them 'the finger'. I don't wave at anybody unless I know them, different story driving a work vehicle. I wave to every other law enforcement vehicle I drive past.

Be careful out there, it's a very crazy society and people have zero respect for others!

I don't think anyone is constantly waving to random people, I was talking about waving specifically to people who drive the same vehicle as you. For me that would be maybe 5-10 waves per month. However you raise an interesting point, in today's "terrible, and violent" society a simple act of waving could spread a bit of cheer and hope. You can't just assume everyone is out to get you, that just makes things worse.

 

I will add that I would never wave to a law enforcement vehicle because I honestly believe that some cops would shoot you just for looking at them the wrong way but that's a whole separate issue.
