The Mustang Wave
#1
Do you guys get a lot of Waves and thumbs up from newer Mustang drivers wen you're out cruising in your 71-73's? I do! It's pretty awesome! I love when you spot a cool late model Stang and the driver flashes me a thumbs up! It reminds me of the Biker Wave. If you watch, a Biker will always give a little wave to his fellow bikers (Usually Harley guys...) as they pass on the street It's kind of neat to be in the Mustang Brotherhood!

Nobody outside of this forum would give me a thumbs up with the current state of my '72, but as a Corvette owner and also a Jeep guy, I can report that "the wave" is alive and well in those groups, and I look forward to getting the same when my 72 is complete.

I get waves from any kind of vehicle. Even old Corvairs! Our 2004 Mach 1 also gets a lot of attention and waves too. Of course I always wave back or even wave first!

As a Harley rider and a mustang driver (even if it is my uncles until mine is done) I have more miles in it than he does Tongue I do see alot of the same looks and waves in the mustang as I do on the bike. Really like it when the young kids pull along side in there 5.0 and rev up the engine and smile. Most look as if they have just seen a ghost or something.

I get waves and a lot of "cool car" conversation starters when stopped at a light. Mostly "what year is it?" but also a few "what is it?" from younger kids.
