Seriously, way over reacting. It's fine, just don't do it again!

My old Man gave me three pieces of advice before he left this shi**y ol' world he said "Son, never lend out your car, your women or your gun"!!

My Dad's been gone now for 8 yrs. I'd give anything for him to be able to get in my car and tear up the tires and break an axle or two!! Lord knows, I tore up a rear end or two and alot of sets of tires in his vehicles, being stupid in high school. He also took the time to teach me how to rebuild what I tore up. Man I sure do miss him!!

I can understand where you're coming from, but I don't think it's worth losing any sleep over. One of the first things I wanted to do was take my dad out in my new camaro. I was actually sad when he wouldn't take the keys. He can drive it any time he wants, as far as I'm concerned.

Lighten up Francis !

If all of our parents acted like this none of us would be driving !

A couple of missed gears is not going to kill your engine, unless maybe he drops it into 1st from 6th at 145 ! But simply lugging the engine a little won't harm a thing. Keep in mind that this man most likely trusted you with the family car (and his life ) when you had absouletly NO driving experience and most likely did it with a smile.

I was wrong.

I know my father did not do any damage to my car probably, but he lugged the engine twice and killed it once on the very short lived drive. I was just so pissed that he could not get it down. I know that i should not be mad its just a car, but this is the first car I have had that cost this much money, its MY CAR, and I'm very paticular about it. So as a end result I guess he ruined it for everybody else because I'm not letting anybody else drive it now. Does anybody think I'm overreacting?

your showing your young age here, its your dad your talking about. Its a car it won't hurt it abit to do this. Take a chill and think about it next time.

Yes I to tore a bunch of my dads cars up. My dad has every right to tear mine up. I let my dad drive my Camaro when I only had 200 miles on it. I let him and my mom drive it without me in the car. After explaining to my dad how quick the clutch engages and how best to use it he promptly stalled it on his first attempt to move the car. I just laughed; I thought it was really funny; I couldn't imagine getting mad at him. He is 70 years old and still in great shape, Thank God!

God, if my father only knew what I did to HIS CARS! (Especially when I was first driving!).
Cut him some slack, realize that some day your son may ask you to drive his new ride and you may not do it as perfect as he would like.
Now go in peace, the world has not ended. KJS
