    I pulled up next to a Gen 3 Sandy Beach, gave a quick honk and wave then pulled into Best Buy. The other Prius happened to pull in as well. He got out and asked if I knew him, I replied "no, you're driving a Gen 3 Sandy Beach Prius" I said with a slight grin, his response was "OH" and walked away. :confused:

    In another instance, a different Gen 3 Sandy Beach arrived at a 4 way stop, when he turned left (passing me) he gave a smile and wave.

    When I had a New Beetle, everyone gave the NB wave, I guess it isn't the same with all Prius drivers. :rolleyes:

    We waved back in '04 and '05. Probably all the Gen1 also though I never had one. However, once the Prius became mainstream, people stopped waving and started thinking I was weird for waving. So I stopped.

    If you were in LA, you'd be waving every 30 seconds and end up with tired arms.

    I had a 2003 mr2 and used to wave as it is a rare sight but most people didn't even notice. Its the same here in Orlando, FL, with a Prius everywhere. Heck we even have them in our fleet at Avis Rent a Car!

    I asked the driver of a new v how she liked her new Prius v wagon. She said it was "nice" and I welcomed her to the Prius club and I mentioned I have enjoyed my new Prius also. She shrugged and replied "Its just a car, why do you care?"

    OK. Either she doesn't "get it" either, or Prius is now just a car. We might all have to face this reality that... wait for it again... Prius is just a car.

    Living among million dollars homes, high end gas drinking SUV's and Mercedes driving teenagers, I see at least 5 Prius's on the way to work before I hit the freeways.I dont wave at any of them.

    Oh well, I wave to anyone, regardless of their ride, so I'm not a good barometer on these things.

    I blame my parents.

    I think it just depends on the location and personality of the person. Not many Priis where I am. I'd definitely wave back, and would be much more enthusiastic about someone pointing out our matching cars :) I had a Prius park by me at the gym the other day. Made me smile. Of course I assumed it was on purpose.
