Our save the wave post last week brought up some interesting conversation on Facebook about which came first, the Corvette wave or the Jeep Wave. (our conclusion: Jeep, of course!) We did some looking around online and found this picture dated January 1, 1945 – soldiers in a Jeep give the “V” for victory to a boy in Belgium. Maybe this is documented proof. waVe on…
One thought on “Wave 1.0?”
I’ve never heard of a Corvette wave, nor have I ever seen one happen. I am aware of the motorcycle “point” though. The motorcycle point May have come first, since motorcycles were around for a few decades before the Jeep, but I still think that a Jeep Wave is the utmost form of respect for a fellow driver.
