Should I allow my daughter and boyfriend to use my camaro for their homecoming?

I am the daughter of the owner of the camaro user known as "oldfriend." My dad has had this car for a little under a year now and he loves it. He won't even use it if it is raining, because he doesn't want to get watermarks on it, that's how crazy he is about the car. My boyfriend and I have a homecoming at school which is almost like a prom and we have been asking him to negotiate with us to get to use the car. My dad told me to post a thread about this "just for fun" but I think that if enough people think it would be okay to take the car for just this one night he might just change his mind and agree to it. So, people if you read this please say that you think it is a good idea!
Thank you for all your help!

Updated

This is tree years later

This time they drove the Camaro to their Honeymoon

Nope! Sorry, my daughter is in high school and lucky if she even gets to ride in mine. I love her dearly but it is Sweet Lola.

Sure. Why not? He's got insurance right? And you'll be driving right? I don't see why not. It's a Camaro. Not a Ferrari. If he does let you, though, just remember, he'll probably be inspecting every inch of it when you get back, and I imagine anything wrong with it is going to get you on a very limited social life for the rest of your high school career.

What year are you, and what year is the boy toy? Also a side note, homecoming isnt really prom right. At least if I remember correctly. Depending on how far it is from your house, dinner, school, etc I could see it. Oh you'll need to check out the boy toy's driving record. No tickets, etc. That days weather conditions play a part too.

All that aside, if it was me.... Hell no. No one drives Kaylee but me (and on a very rare occasion my mechanic).

By the way, it's my senior year of high school.
Please re-think your answers!

I would not allow you to take it. not because I wouldn't trust my daughter, but high schoolers have no respect for other peoples' property. your dad probably cares about his car a lot. if he isn't OFFERING to let you take it, don't push the issue.

I think it's funny how your dad encouraged you to post this. I am sure he trusted that we all love our car as much as he does, so hopefully you would understand his reasoning.. : )

When I was gowing up my uncle had this 4-4-2 that was cammed and did 11 second 1/4 miles(pretty fast for the 80s mind you) and me and my brother would always want to go driving in it, but he said no everytime... finally after 5-6 years he let us, but under one condition, if we drive slowly. So we drove at our own version of "slow", not flatout by any means mind you, but when we got back he told us he knew we didn't drive slow(he ALWAYS drove it like a grandma when we were in it), but we didn't know how..... finally 10 years later he told us how, he had left a gallon of water upright in the trunk, and if it tipped over he knew we went "too fast". So that might be an idea for this father, let her borrow it if she drives slow, and he will know if she does, but she won't know how he knew.

Well my brother let me take is 1979 Trans Am to Homecoming...At least he intended to...I didn't make it 3 miles from home, before I hit a truck and tore the front end off of it...So my answer would be NO! NOT A CHANCE! Sorry....one day you will have your own and can tell your son or daughter...NO...not a chance...

oh, and in reference to renting one. I'm pretty sure the father can't rent for anyone under 25.

Get a group of friends together and rent a limo. It will be a blast to ride around in one with your friends, and much safer. You won't have to worry about driving or anything happening to your Dad's Camaro.
