It depends. If its running great, I'm usually happy to let one of my car friends drive it. If its running funny or if someone keeps bugging me to drive it, **** no.

As BenR said, if you have to ask you probably aren't getting the keys.

Oh, and if you break it (if its your fault) then you better fix it.

They are never going to fix it.

I only let mt brother and cousin drive the Jackel.

I'm not worried about the 6psi car.

But tipically, no one drives any of my cars.

"A select few"

And thus far, they're all from BEGi... imagine that!

If I could meet a woman who could operate a vehicle without running over **** in the road or talking on the phone, I'd probably sleep with her too.

Yeah, if I trust them.

My friend Brian and my Dad I would let take any of my cars I own, or ever would own anywhere if they needed.

Other joyriders? If I've driven with them and trust them, sure, but I'm in the car with them.

She ******* beat on it, too. WOT pulls in 2nd and 3rd gear. Too bad she ended up being batshit nuts.

my good friend that ive talked car **** with for years has probably put as many miles as i have on my new setup. I like to hear it drive down the road from my apartment lol. if i sit outside i can hear him ripping it for a good while. Its always fun to hear someone say they saw my car driving around town even when im not driving it lol, plus i have the keys to his car ;-)

i usually only let my GOOD friends or buddies with cooler more expensive cars drive my miata :-). Thanks to my little tic tac ive had the opportunity to drive an m3 a subaru sti with bolt ons and a semi built evo!!
