Default Vette Snob!

So there I was driving home today on 35W South to Burleson. In the rear view I see a Black C5. Driver pulls in behind and follows for a little then passes on the left side. I look over to wave to her. She stares straight ahead. No wave no nothing!


F__'in Snob!

It's not like she didn't see either! Male or Female I wave to all fellow Vettes drivers!

Oh yea, Plates - Z08 VF_. Looked like it hadn't been washed or detailed in a week!!!!

OK, I feel better now!

There are Corvette owners and Corvette enthusiasts. Not going to change that.

It always seem to be the female drivers that snob you too... At least from what I've experienced...

I thought females were exempt from the wave. Now a days a woman can't even look in a guys direction without taking the chance that he will think she wants to sleep with him. Although girls should wave at each other so I believe your disgust is justified in this case.

I think girls in Vettes should be required to pull over and have a pillow fight...

1. No one is exempt from the wave
2. You mean she doesn't? Dang-it!

Next time you should can't up with her and throw your spare change at the side to get her attention! :lol1:

Now the real snobs are Harley owners that will NOT wave to you on purpose cuz you're on a sportbike... If there's a few of them, I usually give the last one the one finger wave which probably perpetuates the problem...

I wave at all Vette drivers when I'm in my Vette and bike riders when I'm on my Harley but, sometimes I forget and wave at bike riders when I'm in my Vette and Vette drivers when I'm on my Harley and both when I'm in my truck so I'm used to people not waving back and I don't get my feelings hurt any more.
