It's like, "do cows stand up when no one is looking?" :) Perhaps there were loads, but you were too busy czeching out Skodas. > I've tried waving, flashing lights, waving hand out side the drivers > window, and even through the sunroof. FLASHING??? Oh, lights :) One of my mates, who's a big dopey looking bear-sized guy, had a seriously knackered (but well loved) VW Polo 1.0L. I was with him in the car once and he complained that other Polo drivers would not wave at him. "Here, watch", he said and waved at another Polo and they waved back! He nearly fell off his seat. Onto the next one, who waved back, and the next. Yellow Punto (my other bit of fun) drivers are a friendly bunch too :) I get a few odd frowns from Saab drivers when I forget I'm not in the Saab and wave at them anyway. > I have noticed, when I see another C900 in slower traffic, that both me > and the other driver will take time to check each others car out. It really is nice to see other 900s - they all have individual character. If I see a pristine Aero, I have a look and go "hmm, nice Aero" and that's about it, but if I see a backfiring, rust bucket I tend to go "hey, nice chrome window trim". Even if you find an exact duplicate of your own car, you still have to inspect it carefully. Paul 1989 900 Turbo S
