Would you let your GF drive your camaro?

So I'm sure many know of AdamZ lol for some reason he's has been pretty good about being known around here. Well, recently he's let me drive his camaro. I've NEVER driven a manual before so I was pretty scared I'd break his car besides not many people drive their first manual in a $40,000 car haha! So I was thinking.. Would others let their girlfriends drive their cars? Especially when they don't even know what a clutch is haha! Or is he just a crazy man?

Cars are meant to be driven. I've let co workers drive my cars, cousins, mother in law, and my kids when they were teanagers. My son drove my Plymouth Prowler to his senior prom on the 4rd day I owned it in 2001. My daughter drove it on Hot Rod Power Tour in 2005 and dragged raced in two states when she was 19. I let a 70 year client drive my 500 HP SSR (6 speed) to pick up his wife for lunch. I have no problem with family or friends driving my Camaro - all they need is a driver's license and know that I expect the car back in one piece. I love having other create memories driving my cars.

My answer would be based on how much I trust their driving ability. While I don't have a girl friend at the moment I hope that whomever I end up with knows to respect my car as much as I do. But I'm not a big fan of people driving my car. It gets me all worried for some reason

Mine can't.. she can't even reach the pedals to work the clutch. She's 4'10. Guess I win at life by default.

Considering I drive her Corvette 427 because she can't drive stick, she drives mine when we take both cars to shows.

My first manual car I drove was a 1999 Corvette C5 (gargae car, in 2009 it had less than 6k on it...... and was not mine)

Let me put it this way....... I'd never let a gf drive my 04 saturn ion and those are slow and dent resistant. I <3 my tupperware HA!
