Is there a "Van Wave" ?

So I used to own a Jeep Wrangler and thought it was super cool how we had the "Jeep Wave" whenever we would pass fellow Jeepers. If you dont know what it is its nothing crazy just a little lift of the finger/s just to say hello. So as I am cruising in my E350 I started to wonder is there a "Van Wave" protocol?

Thanks!

There seems to be with other SMB or 4x4 vans. Not so much with non modified vans from my experience. When I drive the Vanagon pretty much every vw van owner waves.

VW Drivers are probably the friendliest group of drivers I've ever been a part of.

When we had the '84 4x4 on 35's and big bumpers, I would always get reciprocal waves from the 4x4 van and SMB guys. Now that we have a stock Express with a CCV top, I sometimes forget that even though we are part of the same crowd per se, I just look like another guy driving a conversion van around. You remember the old cartoons with Chester and Spike, where Spike was the big cool bulldog and Chester was the little yipper dog trying to get his attention? Yeah, that's how I feel when I instinctively wave at a SMB guy when I forget that I'm driving a little van (or my work truck for that matter).

I always wave when I see another SMB or 4x4 van if I'm in my van. The last time I drove down south in my van, I passed an SMB and we gave each other a wave. Then a 4x4 an passed me on the 405 and he gave me a honk and a wave.
