One of the many benefits to driving a T is that so many folks that normally wouldn't give another car or driver a second look, either wave or give me a thumbs up when they see me on the road. Even the ones that don't wave usually crack a smile when I go by.
My granddaughters do the Lady Diana wave in reply to a wave.
I do a quick raise my hand wave because I am usually busy trying to keep the car on the road.
I think the funniest ones are those that want to look but don't want to let on that they are interested.
It is gratifying to feel as though we have brightened some one's day-even if only briefly. It never ceases to amaze me how many people take pictures as they pull up along side or get their friends to take a photo as they stand by it in a lot. If they have kids I usually suggest the kids get in for a shot. Big grins abound!!
In all the years of driving the Model T I have only had one occasion that all fingers were not fully extended while waving at us.
If you have car trouble, someone will always stop to offer help. I once locked up and skidded to a stop only to have one of the elders of the Mennonites offer to fetch his mule team to pull me off the road.
We are all a parade while underway and a car show when stopped, Great fun always.
People generally just wave to me with one finger when they pass me on the road .......
I am amazed at the number of people that video me with their phone while they are driving alongside of me. Maybe that is better than texting.
