Anyone get the "wave by" yet? One of the first days I drove my Caliber I was behind a Jeep Wrangler with 3 guys in it. At first they drove 10 miles under the speed limit with the rear passengers turning and staring at me every few seconds. Then they turned on a blinker even though there was no where to turn. After all that I still didn't pass so I got the wave. I finally went around them and got another wave and a thumbs up!

How funny is that?

My previous car was an 03 Electric Blue Mustang GT Convertible. I wonder sometimes which car gets more attention. :D

Maybe it was just YOU they were directing their attention to? :D

OK, probably the car...

... AND an attractive lady.

No waves yet... but it seems everyone driving Dodge trucks stares at the Caliber I drive... or maybe I just notice people in Dodge trucks... I don't know.

With the car being as rare as it is right now, I usually give a wave to a Caliber if I see one. Apparently none of them surf the forums because they all look at me like I have three heads. I guess they aren't as enthusiastic about it as I am...go figure.

Haven't really had the chance. All the other Calibers I've seen were not close enough to get the drivers attention. But Wednesday... I passed an orange or red one, flashed the V, and the other driver flashed it back. I was all giddy like a little kid. silly.

(CaliberChic, that wasn't you was it???!!! Trenton Rd... about 8:30pm??)

I wave at Calibers all the time!:).....

They don't wave back all the time, instead I get the "who are you waving at look!:D", maybe it is because I still drive my Neon...:eek::eek:

I've got the eye catching bright yellow R/T and I get looks and people coming up to me in parking lots quite often asking what type of car it is....Dodge owners love it, and the few other Caliber's I've seen always give the "wave"....course here in Vancouver the "Wave" is something you do at hockey games!!!

I get the wavys, the people stopping when i get gas, when I wash my car. When I get out at malls.... They want to see the cooler in the glove box and the speakers in the hatch.....
My wife has a new beetle same thing happens there to.

We have spent the last three days in Boise at some meetings. I have seen 7 different Calibers. Only one driver did not wave. I think he was a closet "Buick" driver. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

I got a thumbs up from an old farmer in a Dodge Ram, as he hung out the window and watched me turn the corner. Made me smile for the rest of the drive home...but wish he was like 30 years younger.

I like the thumbs up rather than the wave. My last vehicle was a Jeep and it feels wrong for me to wave at something other than a Jeep. Although I come from a small Island in Lake Erie and we wave at everyone there...even if you don't know them...you are just excited to me meeting someone else on the road.

True they may have been waiving you by to get a look, but i dont think it was the car they were looking at. Sorry yes the caliber is a good looking car, but think they were more interested in the driver...
