Thumbs up from a Ferrari F430 F1 Spider driver

I was on highway 101 minding my own business. Going about 80MPH. This guy pulls up next to me,smiles and gives me a thumbs up. He takes off. I catch up going about 100 and I return the nice gesture with a smile.That Ferrari is probably worth over 200 grand.

If everything seems under control, you're just not going fast enough.

I was passing a 4-door covair on the 80 and the driver waved and also gave me a thumbs up! I slowed down to let the driver admire my new chrome exhaust extension.

Once I drove through a walmart parking lot and received a lot of waves. It was because I was driving the wrong way down that parking lane.

My neighbor waves at me when she is watering her flower garden too.

That's cool. People usually only wave at me with their finger...

Maybe you drive too slow or the other people don't have very expensive cars. It is also possible you drive too fast to notice the waves. Have you tried very expensive car wax?

You may not notice that Caribou and Moose generally tilt their antlers to the side for 02's and very expensive cars! But that may be only in Canada! lol

this is hilarious, but "Robot" isn't me in case that's what you were thinking.

i do hope you were keeping your eyes on the road when you were going 100 MPH on the 101 and smiling at the Ferrari driver. Sounds like a good way to cause an accident.

How do we really know you are not [a] robot? Your typing seems very mechanical. Maybe you are not technically a robot, but you are a replicant? Do people in very expensive cars wave to you? Have you ever mixed seafoam and rainX? Does the mixture bead up or foam up when applied to your windshield?

Hey Murphy, are you talking to me, or "Robot"? Whoever "Robot" is should stand up. "Rodin" as well.

I am not sure who I am addressing. It depends on whether you are the genuine article, robot or a robot wannabe? My life coach is on vacation in Alberta and neglected to instruct me as to how to use the robot impersonation detector. Does anybody really know what time it is? Does anybody really care ... no no no! (que the trombones!)

I do agree that chasing cars for up thumbs at extreme speeds seems dangerous and not particularly rewarding. (I prefer having others do the catch up - lol)

Listen dude, I don't appreciate this. Who the fuck are you? You're gonna have to take my word for it. I have no reason to create a fake identity to get any shits and giggles. Apparently other people do.

Calm down. No need to be so defensive or use foul language. I am just an 02 junky who occasionally lurks here. I, like you, (or so I thought) found the thread amusing. I do not know you or any of the other posters and did not mean to personally offend you. I do think the posts speak for themselves.

Sorry. I will go back to lurking.

well i thought it was pretty funny too and refrained from posting for a while but then realized some people might have thought that Robot was me - and it's hard to interpret some of these posts as being sarcastic or not. the one by Rodin sounded like he was talking shit about me regarding my recent post about a fuckin' chrome exhaust extension question i had. sorry if i came across as defensive, i just don't need anyone implying that i would create a fake identity. that's not me. i'm Ryan here, my profile is not hidden, as yours and a bunch of these others are. as you can see from other posts of mine, i'm not afraid to speak my mind and back it up with my own words, unlike others who refer you to other peoples posts for answers and tell you the same thing repeatedly. and so now we've come full circle on the ROBOT MALFUNCTION issue. on that note, to continue the original intended spirit of this thread, i think i'm gonna go over to Sea Cliff and Pacific Heights for a leisurely drive and see if i get any props from drivers of expensive cars. maybe i'll see Robin Williams or Don Johnston. 'Cos if I can get their approval, I'll feel much better about the heritage and capability of the budget-priced classic BMW that I drive daily, and won't have too much anxiety about not being able to afford a car that is fast and fancy and a thrill to drive but to a lot of people says nothing more than look what I can buy and you can't.

P.S. please god have mercy on me for the time i spent writing the above novel.

Robot? I thought you were Rodin, until you posted as yourself. If you are not Rodin, wtf is Rodin?

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
