Flash light Wave

I just want to mention to you fellow Camaro drivers that whenever I see a Camaro on the road, I "wave" by flashing my lights one time..I feel this is a good way to say "HI" just like motor cycle drivers always wave to other bike owners.
I was on a road trip for a 6 hour drive and spotted 10 Cam's and "waved" at each of them...some waved back...I will continue to "wave" since I still see very few out on the road.

You may get mixed results as this is also the universal sign to warn others they are approaching a police vehicle and to watch their speed....

I use my hand to wave. Around here a flashed light means it is okay for you to go such as, if I am waiting to turn left and you are heading towards me, I will interpet this as an okay to turn in front of you. Us motorcyclists wave with our left hand. we do not flash our lights. Another use of the flashed light around Boston is to warn you of a cop or speed trap ahead. If you are in New England and you see a left hand waving out of an SIM SS, or from a blue Harley, that will be me.
