I saw 4 FJ's on my way to work today. I waved emphatically to every one of them and get nothing but blank stares and looks in the other direction. Where is the FJ love?

I put my emergency lights or even high beam just to say Hello. No one has returned the favor :(

I hear ya, I wave all the time and only get a wave back or a headlight flash if it is someone I know in the club! I see a couple every morning and every afternoon to and from work. Everytime I get no response I tell myself, I am never waving EVER again. But I do, cuz I am a true FJ'er...oh well!

The people that don't wave back don't deserve to be driving FJ's!

Do ya ever wave when you aren't in your FJ? I forget sometimes and will wave or give the peace sign when I have to drive my husbands Tundra and see an FJ! That's when you get the really strange looks!

Seems like most FJ drivers I see could care less. I was actually spotted by a forum member on my way home once. When I see an FJ, I slow down or speed up to catch it only to be ignored. I get more waves from other FJs with lifts and other other trail gear. The stock FJs just zoooooooom by :mecry:

I guess the stock fjs try to hide because they think the modded fjs are too cool. Therefore, they ignore us. :( haha

Many of the non-wavers are mall crawlers or soccer moms... They purchased the FJ because it was "cute" and have no idea of what a great family of owners is here!

cheers,

There a lot of drivers out there who I'd prefer to have both hands on the wheel, looking forward....and their cell phone turned off.

I was just talking about this phenomenon a couple weeks ago. Since my post here then, I have passed maybe 30 FJs. Out of those 30, only two waved, but one did go out of his way to pull up next to me in his Sun Fusion and yell across how much he loved my trail team... so that was refreshing. :bigthumb:

Most of the time tho - the other 27 or so - didn't even look or were on their damn cell phone. I would give my kingdom for a device that causes cell-phones to explode remotely, causing severe burns. Sadly, I doubt even that would teach the cell-tards the proper lesson, and they'd be back to bleating on about their mundane lives (bandages and all) in no time.

Howls,
FJ Wolf

That's a tough generalization. I drive a stock '08 TT SE and I try to wave to other FJ's whenver possible (LA freeways excepted). There are modded out FJ's that won't acknowledge you either.
I agree! :) The only mod on my 'rig' is a Moab window sticker and several natural pinstripes and I do the old 'three wiper' wave at every FJ I see. I've only gotten a handful of headlight flashes, waves, or any other acknowledgement, even from modded trucks. Maybe my fellow Austinites have their hands full of Starbuck's and cell phones...
