Valet?

This is tough. I've had my car for 3.5months and the only people that have driven it besides me are my dad and older sister, and I was with them. I've got a date with this chick and was planning on going someplace that has valet parking. So, what do you do? It would look pretty lame to not valet it but I dunno if I want to let some valet kid drive my car. Decisions, decisions.....

If you're not comfortable with it, don't do it. If she doesn't understand, she's not the one.

No way I would do a valet with my SS. Don't care a bit if the girl is put off. If she is
then she would go bye bye.

Pick her up with a junker so you can make sure she likes you for you. When you're sure, then whip it out...(the Camaro, get your mind out of the gutter)...

Nope. No valet person would ever be touching my car, period. I'm sure most would be fine, but there's that one who'd wanna take it for a beating. In fact, if we're going out and I know I won't be able to park it away from other people (door dings, etc.) we take the truck and leave the Camaro in the garage.

Hah. She's seen my car already. And it just so happens that it was someplace that did valeting and I think I made a comment about "hell no I didn't valet" (she wasn't with me but I met her and some other people there).

I would NEVER valet my car. Hell, the thought of parking in a parking lot scares the crap out of me.

No way some random stranger is setting foot in my car.

NO TO THE VALET, I was a valet in Banff many years ago and just trust me, you do not want those guys driving your car. Just tell her you don't want a stranger driving your car and she should understand that. Just let her out near the door and go park it yourself.

or better yet, just go to a drive-through, but then park and make her eat outside the car.

Solution: throw around the money, write down the mileage, lecture the valets, and intimidate people!

A member on another forum Valet parked his Ferrari Scuderia and the valet scraped his rim.

I was a valet before I was in the Air Force. Believe me, you DON'T want to leave your Camaro with a valet...

Agreed! You will come across as a gentleman and someone that takes pride in his things at the same time. She should understand. If she says one thing about it, don't take her out again....she's too materialistic and self-centered.

Oh Hell no!!!!

Drop her off next to the Valet dude then get your walking shoes on and hope he doesn't take off with her before you get back...

...or marry the girl then you rule.

I've only Valet 2 of my cars...G8...never.

94 Camaro - went to a wedding with mandatory valet. Luckily you could see where they park your car. I watched the guy park it myself. Still uncomfortable though.

96 Accord - MGM hotel in Vegas. There was no way I could park in the self park and take all our luggage by hand. When we picked up the car the next morning...valet had left the lights on. Battery died. Waited till they jumped it. Was late to my dinner reservation X(

The wife and I agreed that was the last time we ever valet a car.
