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?

If Tiff could drive (I mean physically) then absolutely I'd teach her how to drive a stick beater then let her drive the SS.
she has helped with every aspect of the car and loves it as much as I do. It breaks my heart due to being born legally blind she will never get to feel the joy of driving a muscle car herself.

I would let my wife drive mine. I actually forced her to drive it. She was a little rusty driving a manual, but it came back to her. She is a good driver, but is still afraid that she will wreck it, even though I tell her it can be fixed or replaced.

The one thing I won't let her do is park it in a parking lot. She may be a good driver, but sometimes her choice of parking spots is questionable.

If my wife was OK with it then I'd let my girlfriend drive it anytime she wanted.


Seriously - there's no way I would not let me my wife drive mine. It's 1/2 hers but still I'm lucky that she understands how much I take care of it so she's not interested in driving it at all. In fact she only drove my Corvette once or twice.

I would let anyone drive any of my cars as long as I trust they are not reckless or drunk. A car is meant to be enjoyed. My 16 year old drives a twin turbo 300ZX in manual.

I want people I know to experience driving my car. I think it's a fun car to drive and quite a bit different than your standard sedan that most people are familiar with driving.

How does she own a Corvette 427 that she can not drive?

I haven't let my wife drive mine yet, and I've had it for eight months. She asked me on Sunday if she would be able to drive it before my daughter does (she's 13). I looked at my daughter, and she shook her head no.

Yes, I will be teaching my daughter how to drive my manual Camaro.

I let my sister drive my SS but that's only cause she knows how to drive a manual already. I'd be hesitant to let someone drive it that needed to learn how to work the clutch. :o

Nope.

Well, never say never. If I was bitten by a Black Mamba and need to get to the hospital in 3 minutes, then I suppose so, reluctantly.

If I was bitten by a King Cobra and had 5 minutes to live, then no.

lol and it's got the MT82 made out of glass. She did awesome. I don't think she stalled it once, but she got frustrated because she couldn't drive it smoothly and gave up. I taught a few other "girls who are friends" how to drive manuals in my other cars, an 07 G35 Coupe and an 08 G37 Coupe. When I was in high school I taught my girlfriend at the time how to drive a manual in my 98 Z28
