Well no. In Pennsylvania we have car inspection. The licensed inspector must drive the car. That is the only time I am not behind the wheel. But hey it is my ride

Yes. The car is easily replaceable. I will even drive it in the rain.

Sure I will. Its just a car, a car that can be replaced. With my GS I would let my buddies/family drive it. Heck they were so nervous when they drove it they would barely go teh speed limit.

Are you kidding? I'm going to recoup the cost of my car by offering tiered admission... $10 for a ride-along, $50 to drive.

I've been trying to get my wife to drive the C6 for years. She refuses.

She's convinced that something will happen to it while she's behind the wheel and that she'd forever feel guilty about it.

Just sold my 2008 Vette and the 2nd person to drive it was the fellow who flew in from TX to buy it!
My wife really doesn’t like to drive a stick and why should she. She has a Porsche Cayenne!
Doubt if anyone will need to drive it but me and if I ever have to take it to a dealer for service-hope not.

Why not? Is the question.

I'm going to guess that those of you who would not let anyone drive it are the same ones that didn't share their toys as kids. :-D

I would let my wife drive my vette but she never wants to risk smacking it up....I definitely let my friends I trust drive my cars...especially a new corvette...

It's fun to see their expressions and a blast to be a passenger once in awhile in a car like a corvette.

Absolutely. I've let several people drive my ZR1 (only those of course that I know have appropriate skills and know how to respect 638HP). Part of the joy of owning something like that is letting others share in the experience, especially if they are an enthusiast but don't have the means to afford something that expensive.
