    Default Where are my props ?

    So how's this thing work ? When crossing another peugeot driver on the road, what do you do ? Do you give a toot ? A nod ? A wave ?

    Is there mutual respect between pug drivers, or at least between drivers of the same model ?

    This message goes out to the white 205 (it may have been an SI, not 100% sure) I was going up Bell street this evening.

    you wave ofcourse... the problem is that noboy does anymore though. I've waved at plenty of people in the 4 door 205, and in the 306, do you wave back? no..


    The latest offenders are a nice looking black 607, and a C5 that both completly ignored me

    you guys have to remember that 70% of ppl just drive pugs cause its a mode of transportation..they dont really give a crap about the heritage and community and what not.

    esp an Si205..for many its a cheap mode of transportation...they dont buy it for its looks or history.

    Default Pug waving

    You're right, very few wave nowadays. When the latest pug on the road was a 504, everybody waved. I don't think some even know what they're driving!

    i think you'll find people in the gti's, s16's, gti6's, etc... more likely to wave as they got the car for a reason...

    i always wave and toot to other 205gti/gti6/mi16 drivers, and invariably, i get a toot and wave back, thats of course if they havent already.

    couldnt be stuffed with anyone 206 or other 306s, really.

    505 drivers and 604 drivers seem to always give a flash of the lights or a wave!

    I think with classic or unique cars you are more likely to get a wave or have your wave acknowledged.

    Seeing a new Peugeot on the road isn't a surprise. There are dozens of them to be seen everyday, and anyone with a job and a small deposit can buy one off the shelf.

    I'll obviously return a wave, but will not go out of my way to wave to each and every other Pug driver. Most don't even see me. To them I'm just another white goods appliance on the road. And I'm very dissappointed with our 607 friends out there!

    Default Cold shoulder

    Got totally ignored recently by a fellow 205GTi driver who'd pulled up beside me at the lights. Not even a hint of recognition. He looked, for all the world, as though he'd just stolen the car and didn't want me to see his face.
    I was stunned and amazed; what's the world coming to?
    I pretty much ignore garden variety 206's there's simply too many of them, and I'd say a good percentage of them feel they're just in a car of some sort.

    What were you waving though? Nobody wants to see that, even if they do like your car...

    I find that anyone in a 405 or older will ALWAYS check out my 406. I must admit I am a fan of the mighty 407 and grin like an idiot when I see one

    The little 'uns don't seem to appreciate they are part of the Pug family so it's rare to get a response.

    I guess the 406 sedan shape is less 'out there' than other models so we do tend to merge into the general driving mass

    My chicky has a new frog green VW Beetle. I cannot believe how much attention that cars pulls!
