Everyone Wants to Drive It... How Protective Are You w/ your Camaro?

Post title says it all.

Not a greedy or selfish person myself and will likely bow to some of the requests, but what about my other fellow members......?

I don't even have mine yet but my entire family wants to drive it.

I'll probably let my family and very close friends drive it as long as they know how to drive stick (getting the M6). Any others... no way in hell

I'm not a big fan of driving other people's vehicles or having people drive my cars. If anything happened everyone involved would feel terrible. Some people will say they are just cars, but to me they are a little more! I prefer to just take someone for a ride.

Wife hasn't even sat in the driver's seat. I cringe when I take it in for any kind of service and the mechanics drive it!

I will let my brothers and my dad drive it. Other than that...pretty much no one. Its not me being selfish, its that i don't want something bad to happen that will not be fun for everyone involved.

Yup, I let my friend drive it the day I picked it up. He promplty ran it up to 95 mph on narrow two lane road. I was nervous about that. I have let everyone in my family drive it. As long as I am in the car... I would let almost anyone can take it out, the car feels that safe.

Will be ordering mine soon (2SS M6). The only other person that can drive it will be my brother who taught me how to drive a stick on his '88 5.0 Mustang when I was 16.

I let my friends drive around my '04 Impreza WRX when I had it, but that was because I was being nice and didn't respect the money I was shoveling out for the car.

My dad has driven it. My uncle was visiting and I let him go around the neighborhood, but that's about it. No one else is allowed and none of my friends will ever drive it, they all know that.

My wife and son have both driven it, but I was co-pilot. Granted, it was only one time for each and I was sweating bullets!

Nope. They know better than to ask. Husband asks before he takes it anywhere, he's the only one besides me who I'll suffer to drive my Camaro.
