***prepares for flames***

can you ask your mom to go with you, since she doesnt want you going alone?

aside from from your GF'* parents cant help get the car, and why it has to be repaired an hour away, maybe your mom would feel better about that

you could always ask to go hang out in east St Louis instead LOL (kidding)

my mom probly wouldnt have the time to go "running all over the countryside for some girl she barely knows"....and im not exactly sure why it had to be taken so far...it was something in the computers and the local ppl she took it too said that "it was too much of a high-performance vehicle for them too work on" *shrugs*

ill clarify again shes not my gf but its a common misconception

i already told my mom the situation...she didnt really seem to give a hoot

hahaha...yeah Springfield is such a dangerous place *rolls eyes*

I been thru there a few times, just on I-44, didnt seem TOO bad there, BUT I have no clue what the surface streets are like.

Still, she is your mother and you gotta make Mom happy, if Mom aint happy, aint no one gonna be happy LOL.

I wish I had a better answer for you, I am struggling with my 12 year olds growing wings and her desire to stretch them too LOL

Speaking from experience:

exp 1: My experienced 17yr olds friend needed a ride home. I let him use my car, it was only 4 miles away. 2hrs later a call from the Police department. My car is sitting with the rear bumper on the shoulder, the nose dug into an embankment, and all four wheels hanging over a 10 foot ditch. Still after 6yrs I don't know how that "really" happened.

exp 2: My 68yr old father lives with me, he has his own auto ins policy. He cuts a corner and takes out a fire hydrant. His policy does not cover all the damages and since he lives with me the city came after me for the remaining damages.

My point? I am 41ys, and I can not say the each time I go to work and back, to the store, run errands, or just out for a cruise that nothing will happen.

If you decide to take the chance, then be prepared to pay the price if something goes wrong. You know your parents best.
