I too have been ignored by passing Spider drivers, in California and Washington State.
That's not the issue in the Pacific Northwest, though. In the areas around southern Washington and Portland, Oregon, vintage sports cars are outnumbered, with 30 or 40 American street rods and muscle cars to each 1 of us ... us being any driver of an older Italian, British or German sports car. The result is that most of us vintage sports car guys tend to wave at one another. I even got a startled look and last-second wave from the driver of a pretty red 1960's SAAB wagon the other day.
There are so few sports cars to wave at that I'm thinking of hanging my arm out the window and giving the cool motorcyle down-low palm flash, just to see how passing bikers will react.
