I've taught my fiance how to drive stick on the GT, I let my bro, my dad, a few of my friends, a neighbor, and a buddy from work drive it. I let my best friend drive it back from Vegas. It's a car. As long as they don't crash it into something and kill themselves I'm alright. I also don't care if valets drive it. I tell them to give it some gas so I can hear it.
