Back in the "Old Days" as a JEEP driver I used to wave to other JEEP drivers and they used to wave back, least I think that was what they were doing, I was always wondering why so manyJeep drivers seemed to be missing fingers.Now as a Chevrolet Captiva owner and feeling a bit lonely as there aren't too many round here, Ihave started waving to other Chevrolet drivers that I come across on my travels. I give a wave this morning to a lady driving aCaptiva and she smiled back, at leastI think that's what it was. Anyway I like to see other Chevrolets on the road I don't feel so lonely when I see another one.
I'm not sure if it's a good idea or not. Does anybody have any thoughts on it?

Hi MrX, I saw a Captiva this morning about 11:30amheading towards Wickford on The Eastmayne, I had just come outby The Watermill and was heading towards Pitsea. I waved but I dont think I was seen. Was it you by any chance?

Hi Brian, no I was in the Toys R Us car park at that time.
Cant believe they didnt wave back!!!

Mine's silver by the way.

Tell you what, if you go over Barleylands on a Sunday morning when the football is on there are loads of them. Couldnt believe it when I was there the other day. Counted 7 not including my own.

Gave a Captiva a wave at Sadlers Farm roundabout yesterday (Saturday) about midday. It washeading down the A130 towards the A127. They do look good on the move.
Didn't get a wave back though

I parked beside a Black Captiva LT outside of Argos at Rayleigh Weir today at about 14:30 hrs. I sat in the car while my wife went to shop, I thoughtthe owner might have come along whileI waited but my wifeseemed to be quicker than normal and we left without seeing any one.
