  • Is a flash considered a wave?

    My C8 is my first Corvette, and I have been oblivious of the 10 Commandments of Corvette owners.
    However, I have always given other Corvettes a double flash, is this considered an acceptable wave?

    I do the same to all my fellow corvette owners. 👍

      I'm a long time vette owner and can not remember anyone flashing their lights as a wave. Do you get a wave back from anyone? 🙋‍♂️

        The wave is a more personal greeting, and It's what I do. I also like to do a "double rev" (both paddles in) as a greeting when the situation provides the opportunity.

        The last time I did a double flash was as a goodbye. About a week ago I pulled onto a smooth Southern Michigan country highway (1 lane in each direction) behind a nice C3, and we proceeded to drive "in a spirited manner" through the Michigan countryside for about 10 miles until reaching the next small town, where I needed to turn. So I flashed him twice from behind as a goodbye.

        And yes, I could have easily passed him if I chose to.

            I wave with top down👋. Flash with top/windows up since other driver cannot see interior while passing by. Getting return flash 90% of the time.

                  There are a lot of Corvettes here and a lot of Corvette Clubs. Rarely does one ever flash or anything else.

                    A Flash is as good as a Wave….

                    reminds me of old Faces album…….

                    A Nod is as good as a Wink……..to a blind horse…..👍😎

                      Corvette ownership here for 45 years. No one flashes lights. Wave only.

                        Thanks for all the advice.
                        I began flashing at Corvettes before I was aware of the Ten Commandments, just as a way to acknowledge our shared history and celebration of the brand.
                        In future I will wave if it is possible, otherwise I will continue the double flash of my impressive LED headlights, I doubt anyone will be offended.

                          No way to flash with these. I'll stick to waving.
