I'm not so sure. This is an affordable car, but they're really not all that common. I see many more mx5's & other sports cars than I see twins.

On phone I am. Therefore, if mistakes I make, Frank Oz blame you should.

MR2s are affordable and not common as well they don't really wave at one another.

Avondale, and Glendale area. What's a spotted card?

To be honest I don't have a problem getting attention in either car, although some of it is not wanted.
I have waved at quite a few and gotten waves back.
Hell @captain_jack blows me kisses, @RedLeader was telling me his number , @jack43 waved at me one day, The Red FRS Mentioned has stopped and talked to me (he was at the AZ86 Bash), A lady in her Silver FRS was pretty much flirting and also blew me a kiss... Jack got upset though.

I really have not had a problem, sometimes they don't but when I notice I look and wave seems to be returned. Must be a Phoenix problem....

I honked like 40 times and a silver fr-s driving on the 17 till he looked over at me! Haha but he was on the other side of the freeway as I was exiting. He did happen to look over finally and I waved like a maniac! It looked like he threw up a simple wave and was wondering if I was sane lol

I saw something depressing yesterday... An fr-s Comercial.. Do you know what this means for us??

I usually get waves as well.

Those who don't are probably on "drone pilot" mode, which doesn't describe a car enthusiast at all. Not to mention that getting tunnel vision like that is just simply dangerous in general.

I did run into another BRZ a few thursday nights ago when heading south on the I17 after D&D. He was really flooring it, and it took me some work to catch up to him in an area where a slow poke wasn't blocking me from pulling up alongside. I got a nice thumbs up and wave from him when I finally caught up alongside. That was fun.

@kavanagh, were you planning on going to the meet tomorrow, or did you want to wait until the weekend to pick it up?
Hey Andy, I think we'll be there tonight, but will likely be short if at all. We'll come pick it up this weekend so you don't pack for (possibly) no reason.

That's about 16 seconds from our house. I'm pretty sure we'll stop by.

Or when bikers rev on you and look like lunatics waggling their helmet around in circles? LoL. I think I've seen you in the wild more than anyone else on here.

As a current sport biker, and former Wrangler owner, I can say both are true. And I nearly kill myself trying to wave at very other 86 on the road and get their attention.

Makes sense...i think the next big one will be the new supra.
In Arizona, almost everyone on two wheels will wave at each other. We don't have quite the same cruiser/sport angst as a lot of other states where they ignore each other. I've had bike cops wave back too. The only biker group that NEVER waves is girls on scooters. I have never ever gotten a wave back from a girl on a scooter, even when I rode a scooter.
