... At highway speeds, there was no chance to wave at each other.
And a wave probably wouldn't be seen, anyway. But, you can pull back on the turn-signal/headlight stalk to flash the headlights. The other SC's driver will surely be staring at your DRLs as you close and pass.

We could even make that the 'Official SantaCruzFoums Top-Secret Handshake for Recognition at Highway Speeds' -- a quick double-flash of the headlights.

Yeah, I flashed my high beams at a local Santa Cruz in town a few months back, the other driver looked confused when I did so.

The main reason I didn't flash them during the trip is I didn't want people to think there was a cop up the road.

Ahhh, but a forum member would recognize our 'secret handshake' and reply in kind. Why, it might even turn into a 'blink-fest!'

Were you afraid they might slow down for a little while? :D

Had my first night time sighting last week, was almost tricked into thinking it was yet another Tuscon (I see 5 of those a day easy) but was a SC.

Someone about 0.5 mile from my house owns one and it's on a road I drive down pretty regularly. Felt like it was taunting me during the 2 weeks it took between putting a deposit down and taking delivery of mine (just picked it up Saturday, White Limited).

Saw a Sage colored one at Gilbert Fire Places and BBQ off S Gilbert here in AZ. It also had some rails on the truck, likely the same one I saw about two weeks ago off Ray/S Val Vista hauling a big box in the back.

I finally saw another SC. The first time since owning it Since April 2022… so 3 months. I was pulling into a bowling alley and it was parked out front of the restaurant next door. Black with some swirly decals on the doors and what appeared to be a Hawaiian design on the back.

I'm seeing SC's more and more. Today I drove to Colorado Springs and saw three of them.
I saw a white one on Hwy 50 near Canon City. I saw a blue one and and a grey one Hwy 115 south of Colorado Springs. I had no time to lower my window and give them a 🤙 so I flashed my headlights with no reply.

While driving down one of our local streets that I noticed another SC sitting in a driveway. What made me look twice and eventually stop was the color was Mojave Sand, the same color as mine. I talked with the owner for a few minutes, and she said they are thrilled with the SC. Not on the forum, but I did recommend it for some great information. Two Mojave Sand Santa Cruz in the same town, hard to imagine with so few built.

I am not taking about at a dealership sitting on the lot (rare enough) but just another random owner driving by?

Today I saw an Accelerate Yellow (that highlighter maker color) convertible C8 in a parking lot and was reminded how rare spotting one in the wild still is nearly two years after the launch. When my wife had her super rare Volvo C30 I could count on one hand how many I encountered in traffic.
I've seen VERY few in Illinois, and they were all before I moved from Bloomington(which is a good sized city) to Galesburg(which is fairly small). As far as I know, I've got the only one around here.

It looks like my SC is not the only one in my small town any more. I went to the bank today and saw this black SE parked in the employee parking lot so I parked beside it for a quick picture.

Spotted a white SC in the Bolsa Chica beach parking lot today right next to the boardwalk. Caught me off guard as I went by. Told myself I would grab a photo of the way back, because it had a full mountain scene in black graphics on it. I couldn't tell as I went by if it was a business or advertising graphic, but what I saw looked really good.

Saw two of them Sunday afternoon in South Irving, within a block of each other.

I was heading west on Rock Island, between O'Connor and Sowers. My wife pointed out a Blue Stone heading east, and I saw a Hampton Gray about a half-block behind it.
