I drive a mk2 ford focus estate and whenever I see another mk2 focus and especially if it's an estate, I get the urge to flash the lights or wave at them as if to say "hey, I have a focus too..." or "Look we both have the same!" 

 

I've never done it, but I fear that one day when I'm a little tired or something, I'm gonna wave like an idiot at someone who is going to be left wondering what the hell is going on..

 

Anyone else had this with their Mondeo, Focus, Fiesta, etc etc? Or am I the only weirdo...?

Just you maybe if I had an unusual, old or rare car but I have a focus would be waving to every other driver.

Totally agree with you, I don't know why I feel like doing it, I think it's just focus estates more so :lol:

I think maybe because I have a focus estate that there are less of them, compared to say focus hatchbacks.. so when I see an estate, I'm thinking: "Wow, you chose an estate too!" (but yeh, I don't act on that thought, or say it!)....

 

...Not looking forward to the day I see a Mk2 tango red focus estate with thule aero roofbars...I think my head will just explode..
