Just finished with all the odds and ends of replacing the carb and was driving around testing it out and seeing how good my tuning was. I am sitting on a road getting ready to turn north bound on Alma School and some guys drives by in a VW bus and they both wave??

Is that normal? I've had friends with Jeeps so I wasn't too surprised, and I ride motorcycles so those guys usually do the two finger salute but I guess I wasn't expecting it in the baja. Made me day anyways Smile

That and the magic power of the bug to make every child in a 1000 foot radius stop whatever they are doing and stare.

It's common. In the rail I'll also get some from Harley riders. Does this mean you'll be ready for the next outing?

I think the Wave is from not hving an A/C on the car. Seem when I used to Drive My Baja my arm would hang out in the Breeze and flap around alot.

Hate to Bust your Bubble about being the cool guy on the street...

Aww man Sad I was going to place it on my resume.


Perrib: I'll probably start going to some of them in March. I'm starting a new job tomorrow and my schedule goes through a few changes and I don't know when those occur. (9am-5pm for the first X # of weeks, then some other unknown schedule).

The wave is common, I always wave to a VW as im passing, and they usually wave back, and some times they wave first. Cool

I always get waved to by any air-cooled VW some water-pumpers have even waved at me. and its cool to be driving down the street and everyone stops what they are doing to turn and look at your baja. I got a compliment from a non VW driver on my baja and the sticker "my car isn't a piece of shit its custom". it just makes your day when you get the Wave

Where did you get that sticker? Or is it custom made? I like it Laughing

I got the sticker up in Oregon (where I'm originally from) at the Rose City Bug-In show. I don't know if you could get them anywhere else. I swear every air-cooled VW owner needs to live by the motto of the sticker weather your car is a looker or a project like mine

the wave is definitely a common thing. my favorite thing is seeing someone walking down the street and reaching over to punch their friend after they call "slug bug"

A wave is cool long as it's not a 1-finger wave!
Is a 2-finger wave the same but done with both hands?

Maybe the guys in the bus thought you were of the same gender orientation as them?












PS: That orientation is obviously "Cool Guy"...not whatever else you preverts were thinkin' I was sayin'!!!!

@JWH I love when that happens or your sitting at a stop light and you hear them yell it and hit their friend
