Say you're cruising on the freeway, or what ever and you come upon the exact same car as yours, maybe except for the color...do you pass by like it was not there, slow down take a peek and then pass, or pass with a quick beep on the horn, or slow right down to get a look who's driving and a thumbs up or whatever? :)

i used to try to give a wave or a friendly thumbs up. However, in dallas it seems the majority of the is300 owners are all old granny's or soccer moms who just kinda look at u with a weird look cuz you are waving or giving them the thumbs up. Now i'll only really make an effort is i see another modded is around.

I've yet to pull up next to a younger driver when I find fellow IS owners in Scottsdale/Phoenix.

Are there any in this city??

I usually try look over and give them a *nod*
Out of like 5 IS300s I ran into - only one of them gave me a *nod* back.


The other night I ran into another IS300 on 355 heading North - it was 4am and it was empty so just me and him. I tried to get even with him but he noticed me coming up and started speeding up.

We got to the tollbooth and he waited for me and wanted a race. He had the auto and I have 5 speed - we took it up to 100 mph ++ and I won.

i usually dont acknowledge IS drivers if they are too old..alot of people in my area have IS's and most ofthem are old and wrinkled. I have seen very few younger lower 20 - mid 20 year olds driving around. Usually if i see another IS owner..ill pass them real fast.

I usually wave or flash the high beams to say "HI". Usually get a positive response...
