I do too. But don't feel bad, I rarely get any waves back. Now, if I were in Texas, that'd be an entirely different story! No matter what anyone has to say badly about Texas, folks are just down right friendly there! :tu:

This issue pops up regularly. I do, and it drives my wife nuts (along with pointing out any SLK I/we happen to see). If you like to do it...keep up the good work, sadly, don't expect a reply..
lol My wife can't stand it either.

Not only do I wave, but I also try to track down the car/owner and hand out one of our NC/SC SLK Group info flyers. If I see an SLK parked somewhere, it will get a flyer under the windshield. Several of us in our group do that. None of us have been arrested for stalking yet. :)

I wave.....don't care if I get a reply ......
We had this same thing on motorcycles.
BMW riders wave back, Harley riders only wave to Harley riders.
BMW K1200LT riders had the special "he-man woman haters club wave."
I waved/wave to everyone , SLK's, motorcycle, scooters, bicycles............
Everyone that's out in the air and not locked in a cage............
A great man once said "only a dog with it's head out the car window, understands why people ride motorcycles or drive convertibles."
Bicycles.......have you ever been traveling in the desert for two hours, never see another vehicle for hours, then there's this person pedaling a bicycle up the same hill you just coasted down and....... in my opinion they deserve a wave ( and a cold bottle of water if you have one.)..........
there......I'm done for now.

This subject just came up while driving my car yesterday. I waved at someone in another black slk and got nuthin'. My passenger said "it's not a motorcycle," but I didn't/don't care!

I wave all the time - Wife always asks; "who was that"? I always answer; "I don't know - but she wasn't cute enough to chase down anyway". Wife always responds; "very funny".

I always wave - because it is alway fun to have that little exchange with the one I love.

I wave, but rarely get a response. I also stare in disbelief when I see one with the top up and it isn't raining. In Oregon, if it isn't raining then there's generally no excuse for the top to be up!

Well, if anyone's passing Bournemouth and waves at me, you'll get a wave back with a big smile - and maybe we can go to "viewpoint", have a bacon roll with a cup of tea, lol...:biglaugh:
