MX6 owners and secret handshakes

Hi '6ers..

I'm very new to being a part of the MX6 family (less than a week), having spent the last few years as an MG owner.

If you ever drive an MG (at least here in Adelaide), you'll notice that if you see another MG driver, you are required to give them a greeting wave. Owning an MG apparently makes you part of some secret "waving" club, and you have to wave or you're a stuck up rude person unworthy of the spokey-dokey wheels and cloth cap.

Now when I drive around in a Falcon, other Falcon drivers don't wave and neither do I - or I'd be crashing into stobie poles, because I'd never have my hands on the steering wheel from all the waving.

What I'm wondering is whether such a tradition exists for MX6 drivers, and in particular for a smaller place like Adelaide where you don't see MX6s as often as you see a VN commodore with a "Bad Boy" sticker in the window. Do you salute each other? Is there a secret handshake? Is there anything that I need to know now that I'm a member of this little club, too?

Cardinal B.

PS. If you see some idiot woman in a red '93 MX6 give you the steering wheel wave, then it's probably me :wave:

I'm amazed

There is someone else here with an MG. My grandfather (who i live with) and i have a '70 B GT, '64 B race car, '74 Midget and '58 Magnette. It is compulsary to wave at any other driver, but some of the new MGF owners don't seem to know this yet! I have a MX6, so now i'll have to start waving all the time. We do this and soon all the MX-6 guys and girls will start retuning the wave.

Do you still have your MG?

The nice thing is that because I didn't have the roof on, he also got to hear me reply.
I want to hear your reply!
That yellow race is not all that fast. At the national meeting this year the last owner of our new race car ate that one up and spat it back out. Granted, my new car beat everything there including V8 gt's and supercharged specials. Then it won the motorkhana the next day to! And we paid a lot less than the yellow car's asking price to.

MGF's rock, if they are driven propaly, which alot arn't. Rubber noses, not cool.
