Will be interesting to see if owners/drivers of the new Giulias will wave to other Alfa drivers of older versions, let alone other new Giulias, as the drivers of older Alfas have done, including myself of course, and that of some other sports car marques.
Or, will the majority of new owners be a different breed, not recognizing the camaraderie of the owners of the other models of this marque.
Warning: rant below
I have found through years of observation that in general, owners of 164s wave to other Alfa drivers, but those drivers tend to not wave back unless they drive a 164. I think drivers of older Alfas tend to ignore the 164, perhaps even the Milano, even diss it on occasion. Maybe an example of this to me was the national conference in Olympia, and also the issues of the club magazine I have recently received, where there is no mention or pictures of 164s, just the older cars and the occasional new.
