A co-worker asked to drive mine and I told him I loved him like a brother but,

"Friends don't ask friends to drive their Bonnies!!!!!!"

I've had mine 2 months and 9 days and fiancee still hasn't driven it!

Until West Coast Bonnie Fest, only one other person had driven it (other than kim in parking lots). That'* Eric, the guy who films my hi-speed runs for me. I trust him implicitly.

After WCBF, I can't count the number of people on one hand any more. We all swapped cars.

I don't trust many to drive my car. I've only let my son drive it a few times, my dad a couple of times, and Sizzle drove it once. Thats all.

I let my g/f drive my car whenever she wants. I trust her so it don't bother me any. Her car'* in perfect condition....3 yrs old and not one scratch in the paint. So I don't mind at all.

Sweet, I went and picked up my car around 3, Nothing wrong with it. We rode over to his house in his '93 SE. Yup, He bought it today. We got the front speakers swapped, Now to get the deck and HU swapped. The only thing that sucked about following him back over to my house, He'* a little faster.. (for now)

If you love your car too much to let people drive it often, that just means you love your cars as much as I do

Which is probably a condition you should seek professional help with. Seriously


lol, and Jim, I'll tell you this right now: I will let exactly 8 less people drive my beloved 'Rora than you let drive yours :P

There'* two memory settings for a reason, you know. Just two... not 10
