Do you guys say hi to other S550 mustang owners on the road?

    Now the real question:

    Do you wave to other Pony cars?

    You and they are both awash in a sea of Non-Pony cars in the mass of highway vehicles.
    Enemies by birthright each you are, but must stand together against the tide of Non-Pony mediocrity in the great wild.

    I wave any chance I get when I see another modded mustang. I always have people stopping and looking at my car, or staring at it when I'm stopped at a light. Usually they turn away quickly though when they see my ugly mug looking back at them.

    Lately I have felt invisible....when I stop at a gas station people don't even look. It's like they are in another world. There are not a lot of convertibles out on the road where I am at so I thought I would get more attention. I am not looking for it mind you, that is not why I bought a vert or even my Mustang GT coupe I owned previously. I get the sense that some people may think i'm pretentious, but maybe that is my own insecurities with owning a sports car. I try to compliment and acknowledge anyone I see who I deem a "car enthusiast"..driving a "stand out from the pack" type of car - everything from a Honda Civic Sport model, Subaru WRX, BRZ, Challengers, Camaros, Corvettes, etc... and of course any make/model of Mustang...

    Around here, If you wave, they think you either want to buy drugs or looking for a hooker.

    I used to wave at every Mustang I saw, but most of them never waved back so I don't bother anymore. If they wave first I'll return it but it seems everyone is in their own little world these days.

    I still don't wave to other S550 owners but while at my credit union yesterday I was complimented on my car by a not bad looking woman who worked inside the branch who has her own red GT with black stripes along the top and louvers with some aftermarket wheels. I told her that she had a nice car.

    I live 2 minutes away from the Mustang plant and I work at the Ford Research and Engineering Center in Dearborn. There are a ton of Mustangs around me everyday. I never noticed other Mustang owners acknowledging me. I think it’s because they are super common here.

    I noticed the same when visiting. I think its because a LOT of new Ford employees jump at a plan A purchase and a lot of them are young. So the single ones buy a Mustang and the rest buy an Escape. LoL

    Well... I was going through the drive-thru at Dickey's earlier tonight (I know it's bad, don't judge), and I got a fist bump from the guy working the window. He has a BMW E92 sedan, but his friend's wife owns a California Special. Does that count?

    I wave at GT350s (I rarely see them, however) and other Mustang GT drivers. The non GT drivers don't generally even look my way because they aren't in it for performance and don't realize a 460+ hp car is driving next to them.

    I always acknowledge other Mustang owners, especially our S550’s. Most times it’s a slight wave, or a thumbs up or even a flash of the lights. I’d say about 85% of the time people respond in kind or even initiate it. I had a couple of guys in GT350’s give me the thumbs up and traveled together while on the same road.. I used to do the same thing when I owned my Fox bodies back in the late 80’s early 90’s but back then it was pretty much 100% returned.

    Might have already posted here but will say the first few years of ownership waved at most s550's but only the 5.0s would acknowledge so I guess you could say I look for fogs and hood vents first. ..haven't seen a 18-19 in these parts yet lol..

    I don't wave at GTs because I figure the driver will just roll his eyes at my unmodded 3.7, presuming I haven't a clue how much hp they have, and could never be wondering if their 18 or 19 has active exhaust or the A10. I do wave at Ecoboosts to see if the driver looks high.

    Seriously, I'm more inclined to acknowledge another Mustang when out of the car in a parking lot or gas station.
