Default Is it normal to be this scared?

My buddy just drove off in my car... He'* the one We've been looking for a Bonneville for. He works nights and I'm not waking up at 2-6am to give him a ride so he'* got the car for the night. Hopefully if everything works right we'll be putting his sound system in and getting him signed up this week sometime. But jesus.. watching my car going down the road and knowing she'* not coming home tonight just scares the living crap out of me. Luckily the wreck that totalled his truck wasn't anywhere near his fault and he'* had no other wrecks. But still... I know he'* a good driver, And responsible, But i'm not going to be there... What if she chugs and he doesn't know what to do? What if he doesn't realize how long the front ofthe car is and hits the back wall of his carport? I'm not sure I'm going to sleep tonight...

A person should feel priviledged to be able to drive my car, I can count the number who have on one hand. I don't think I'd ever loan it out to anyone.
I'm tempted enough to misbehave with it.

I can count them on one hand too, Him, Mom, Dad. He'* had a little fun with it while I've seen him drive it, But I'm pretty sure he got the idea when I mentioned that I know where his family lives...

But that hot chocolate sounds like a good idea, Maybe I can get a little sleep.

Mmmm driven my car? Does one hand. Even let a FEMALE do it...

Dame you sound like you're worried about body damage on the ol' handbasket.... Well i guess now that you got all good panels, and it'* straight up front you don't want that messed up. But if he tweaks something on a carport....

My mom drove the car for 5 years regularly, I wouldn't let her near my car anymore. My lady friend is 2 months away from her license [if it means anything to you, i'm 1.5 years away from my license].. when I picked her up one friday evening, she wanted to drive [didn't trust me, I have a really heavy foot], I wouldn't have let her drive the beast and I made that pretty clear. .

Whew. The'* cars' safe and parked. Now I can pass out, He lives in a older peoples neighborhood, She'll be safe. Now hopefully she'll be safe as he does the required running to buy his car tommorrow... *hope*hope*hope* She just passed 180K yesterday, She'* too young to die. *more hope*

New drivers' driving? Never. Trav has had his license for like 3-4 years.

And the DD thing, that reminds me, Bigun drove the car a couple times.

*some luck too*
