Oh yeah I definitely wave enthusiastically or honk my horn, flash my lights if need be. It's a great feeling to see another S2K bro (or sis). Thing is our cars are quite rare pretty much anywhere in the world so often times I'm the only S2000 on the road as far as the eye can see.

Typically I notice most of us do wave when we see each other. I live in the Minneapolis/St Paul area. I also get lots of attention from lots of people when in it :P Being yellow with black wheels, it does look like a hotwheels toy so that is expected I guess. Kids LOVE it They always yell, wave, etc when they see it.

Another group that typically gives a nod, wave, etc are people on sport bikes. I guess the S2k is kinda like a sportbike with 4 wheels in some ways, with the low tq, high revving motor so maybe that is it.

And of course, I do get the ricers who think they need to impress me with their stanced civic, moms volvo (yep, had a kid trying to start a street race with me in a stock volvo), etc that like to rev, try to start a race, or just basically do a ricer flyby when the see me driving down the road. I typically just totally ignore them and do not even look at them. That is kinda annoying, but I guess to be expected lol.

Yeah, I get respect shown from sportbike crowd as well (a group I used to belong to). Its like a dog that can just sense another dog he meets for the first time is actually related to him. Somehow they know.

I three season dd my S. In an average week I see exactly zero other S driving around. Maybe see another one once a month. Maybe. So enthusiastic recognition soon follows.

PS - For the pedantic among us, the zero comment was meant to be hyperbole. Once/month does not average out to zero/week...

Nope, not here in Self-Involved Land (Washington DC area).

When I got my Miata in 2000, I read about all of this waving thing. Since then, in the Miata, then the S2000, and now the Boxster, if I see someone and wave first, I get a response 25% of the time. If I don't wave first, it drops to 0% of the time.

It must be a sports car thing. I've seen the same thing with my RX-7's, my RX-8 and now my S.

I read that the practice can be traced to MG owners after WWII, when they were (relatively) rare on the roads.
