Who do you let drive your Mustang?

marylandGT had a good idea in another thread, who do you let drive your Mustang?

Me, no one other than the service tech where I have work done to my car if I don't want to or can't do something. (like the front end alignment)

2013 GT 6 spd, GT500 mufflers, BOSS quad exhaust, Roush CAI, Barton shifter & 2 post bracket
CS GT-40 Wheels, Hotchkis sway bars, upper and lower control arms, springs (1.1/1.6 drop) and adj panhard bar KONI yellow struts and shocks J&M caster/camber plates,
BMR Upper control arm mount and lower control arm brackets.

I've let a couple close friends drive mine while I was in the car. I did let one of my sisters take it by herself for about 30 minutes though.

Just about anyone. I have full coverage insurance and some warranty left. Besides why should I be the only one to get enjoyment from driving it?

Nobody, but only for insurance reasons. A friend crashed my new 01 Celica GT when I got it and my insurance went up and I had to dump the car at a loss as it just never looked the same. The Mustang isn't built to the same tolerances so it will be fixable in a crash IMO.

I let my wife drive it whenever she wants. She's driven all my cars, except the ones with manual trans. And she's a damn good driver and mechanics helper. Her opinion is that "If God wanted her to drive a stick, he wouldn't have invented the automatic transmission". She's funny that way.

Let my old man drive it a few times. First thing he does is mash the throttle and do a rolling burnout in 1st gear.... "oh wow its powerful"... LOL yeah....

Also the last time i let him drive my previous mustang he got a reckless driving charge in new york state which was then bartered to a 600$ ticket for tint.

I work away from home weeks at a time so when im not working, my mom loves to take the GT out all by herself. I dont mind at all. She deserves it. The only rule i have is: dont park next to anyone else.....ever. My older brother and younger sister on the other hand cant drive ithe car without me in it. My brother has a history of magically breaking things while my sister somehow flipped three times into a field in my 2010 GT Oh, and my girlfriend has only driven the car once. She immediately noticed how it brings out the worst in other drivers and vowed never to drive it again. Mostly thanks to some drunk looking middle aged fat guy in a rundown nissan z
