Who do you let get in the drivers seat? Just about anyone? Nobody? Friends? Wifes? Other rodders?
Anyone can drive any of my vehicles anytime...that's what insurance is for...
no one, my wife can't drive a stick anyway. I would let my dad if he wanted to.
I certainly wouldnt let anyone with the last name BAYE go anywhere near my car!!!!!!! warned!
can i ...kiding
i let my girlfriend all the time.......nothing sexier!
I let my youngest son take it when he wants. This is a pic of him and his girl going to a wedding in it.
me auto es du auto...si????
You got right to the bottom of my post - one of these days he's gonna ask
let my daughter & boyfriend take my old blister to her high school prom. I let anyone drive it.. Its only a car
I tried to let my buddy take it down the track last Sunday... He said, no, he would feel terrible if he broke it... I think I might feel the same way if it was his.
Your Son...Yeah.... guess thats a birth-right.
ask..he wont ask..your just gonna hear it start up, and then see it rolling out of the garage
You got that right. that little bastard.....I'll have to change the code on my door.
Only if they are 26 years old or older as Grundy insurance does not insure anyone driving your car under this age. Hagerty might be the same, I haven't read one of their policies in while and I can't remember their year.
Don't have a rod, but I've taught a few of my friends how to drive a 3-speed in my chevy. I figure why not, there pretty bullet proof. Drop the clutch, it starts a creepin'. I'd probably let anyone drive any car I could hope to ever own though. Not borrow it, but drive it. This means I'm in the car...
My dad on the other hand can take whatever I have wherever he wants. After all, none of this would have been possible without him.
And anyone that I know that I perceive to be "old". I won't say what number I think that is
My wife drives the Model A while i drve the 39 truck to the car events.Seeing that mile wide shit eating grin on her face when she rolls into the show makes it all worth it....SOME TIME IT CAN GO TO HER HEAD...LOL
I'll let a few of my friends drive mine...these are the same friends I would leave unattended in my house!!! My wife hates driving it anyway, can only get her to once in a while. the whole no working speedo and cherrybombs scare her I think
The boyfriend was shocked when I told him he could use the coupe. I looked him right in the eyes and said "I'm let'n you take my daughter ain't I, thats just a car"
PS they got home about 2 AM, daughter said he never went over 35, waz too busy waving to everyone ... LOL
I let a very select few drive my car. They have to have put in time on the car, been an influence on the car, or contributed to the car for them to drive it. My dad can drive the '40 whenever he wants, but he'll have to be with me if he drives my A coupe... I dunno. I'm very protective of my stuff.
I let my wife do whatever she wants with my rod.
the wife can drive , ride or beat the snot out of anything i own other than that! whoever is sober!
Yes, there are people that I trust with.... Son. Daughter. One Grandson, I do. Another I never will. The other, it's a possibility, someday.
ARE YOU NUTS?
I would be a nervous wreck if I let it get out of my sight under the control of someone who hasn't built and driven their own first.
Only a very few who know what it is like to build and drive their own have ever been allowed to touch any of mine.
I want them to learn good judgement with their own machines first, not learning the hard way with mine.
Who I would let drive them? My wife, a few trusted friends, my dad. Oldest son, no way. Next boy is only 10 now and he's got a shot if he keeps on the straight and narrow. My girls are 8 & 3, time will tell.
I'd let my wife drive anything. Probably 2 other friends.
I had a motorcycle totaled and not paid for by friend of a friend years ago, live and learn...
Exactly. If my kids/wife/friends hurt it, we can fix it. Besides, most people take better care of friends stuff than their own.
Since I've abused my old roadster for almost 50K, I'll let my friends drive it. And my wife can drive it anytime. Here's a pic of my friends Randy and Pam driving it from Hill City in the Black Hills back to their home on the east side of South Dakota after his roadster had a problem in the differential. I had my pickup and car trailer there so I hauled his car back home to him a few days later. They turned over the 50,000th mile on the roadster on their way back home. Randy has saved me in past when I busted my oil pan on a speed bump in Santa Rosa, California. I took it off in the Flamingo Motel parking lot and he tig welded that oil soaked cast aluminum pan back together at Vern Tardel's shop at midnight! We have covered a lot of miles together over the last eight years and its all been fun!

When the car is up to snuff, no problem. If it is displaying idiosyncracies, not so much.
Used to be no one ever. Now it depends - if the car is dependable, and I know the person well, i.e. dependable - no worries. It's just iron. I tell 'em if they break it, they gotta fix it - that separates the men from the boys!
