I Love Your Rig!

I was driving home from Pine Junction tonight and happened upon this really sweet FJ40 on 285. I tried to signal the guy that I loved his FJ, but I could tell he was getting nervous, so I eventually gave up and then drove around him.

I think his plates said 229 VWH or something close to it. Was it a member sighting? If so, I swear I didn't mean to freak you out. :thumb::beer:

That's what I gave him, but he looked at me as if I were insane!

It works best if you are driving a cruiser at the time.

Yup. When I'm behind the wheel of my wife's minivan, Cruiser Drivers routinely never see me.

No kidding! I wave to Zepp almost every morning as we pass on 285, but Prii must not be on his radar... :rolleyes: :D

Yup, driving the same cruiser. I wave to 40's if I'm in my 40, 60's if I'm in my 60.

We'll teach you the secret RS hand shake when you become a member. ;)

If you have a lifted 80, the folks in 40s will wave at you. If it's stock, not so much.

In my 40, I'll get waves from anyone driving old iron, especially if it's been modified: Jeeps, Broncos, Scouts.

WOW, I got a wave from two FJC owners now... but that is about it. :(

FJ40's can't be missed, we always wave, unless I am in our Corolla! :D

I stopped waiving at cruisers. No one ever waves back if you're in a 100.

So does anyone know who this might be?

As for :thumb:s up when driving around. I get more people doing that when in the 40 than the LX. When enroute to the antenna building party a couple weeks ago I stopped for gas (since I have one of those Sharkbait gas gauges :hill:) and a guy in a Highlander stopped and chatted with me for a good 5-10 mins. He owns a FJC and was just up at Carnage. Had I been in the LX I doubt he would have stopped.
