I see a few 86s around here, and wave, but usually all I can see is a windshield glare.

In town I get the thumbs up from the kids, so I like cruising by the elementary/middle schools. That's not weird!

Usually the older kids have HP on the brain, so skip the high school.

Naw, I say each to his/hers own. I appreciate a wide variety of automobiles.

But, I drive a BRZ.

Iíve been seeing more and more twins around here which is cool. I almost always wave and almost always donít get one back lol the only time Iíve been noticed was at a red light where a modded one revved as he pulled up.

I like seeing them around though. Itís nice

i alway wave/nod when i see a twin (90% of them are BRZ) and i get nothing back.
but on the rare occasion i see another 86 and get a nod back.

but most of the time the modded cars around town (not many) we would rev or wave or speed off when side by side.

I donít wave. Only because I live on a military base, every other car is a Subaru. Thereís more twins here than I can even keep track of, and the WRXís are like the new ďV6 CamaroĒ. Iíd just be waving every 2 minutes.

I don't get how you all can actually see other drivers. Maybe it's because my eyes suck or I'm daydreaming, but I usually only notice other twins if they make a point of wanting me to notice them. They all know who I am since I have bright green wheels.

If coming toward me it is easy. If coming up from behind or beside me I usually hear them before I see them and look around for the car with the boxer engine. Obviously I find more WRX/STis than anything that way though. Should a quiet one sneak up on me I probably won't react in time to wave and they then get all dejected and post on here how nobody waves. Even when I do instinctively wave back I usually have my tinted windows up so they may see a slight shadow at best or think I ignored them at worst. The moral of the story is that anybody that wants a wave needs to have a loud enough exhaust so I can find them and get my window down.

I wave like a looney we got the same car afterall. Hell i've seen 7 different twin cars in my own small town and I make sure to wave at them everytime I see them, except for the gray one he's a ****.

Im sure most of us can tell by the dimensions of the car and headlights
I can spot one coming up behind me just by the headlight style

About 1/3 I come across wave which I return, another 1/3 will hoon like morons, and the last 1/3 is an ignore. If you are in the I5 corridor in OR and you drive like an idiot there is a good chance you are on my dash cam.
