Re: cameraderie?

I grew up with Corvettes.  You know, all the corvette owners give thumbs up,
right?  Sure, that stopped in the 80's.  Either the pople in the new ones
thought they were hot sh*t in their $50k+ cars and ignored you, or the
people in some of the 60's cars (like our) bought them because of the price
speculation, trying to cash in on the value.  Few people really respond to
the thumbs up in Vettes, and even less so for something more "common" as a
general Audi. True, most people are driving auto, 1.8s, front drivers, gold
package, no mods cause the car is "the hot car" of the moment.  I ignore
most people, and make eye contact with the S4/S6, UrQ, 200tq, etc people.  I
try to talk to the others, but there is too much going on behind the wheel
to wave, etc.  It just isn't happening, here in the US.
