I use to let an old girlfriend race my 11 sec GN at the track.. she knew what she was doing and never had a problem.

Hey, you better take your dress off and put your pants back on! :smash:

I guess I am lucky, my wife has no intrest in driving my Vette. She rather
drive her SUV.

QUOTE]Help, I think I made a big mistake.......

The other day, I let my Fiance drive my Vette home from work. Today she came up to work and swapped me cars (she did ask first) and took the Vette again......

I feel like I'm losing it....... Help me get through this crisis....... Any support from anyone out there???????

I think the only solution will be to buy another Vette just for her.......

Help.......[/QUOTE]

My solution was easy....I bought a manual

i don't even let my g/f drive my Stang let alone my vette. She know that car is off limits for her. Buy a stick and hope she doensn't learn to drive it. Disconect the distributer cap and tell her that the car won't start or something like that

Aw heck man, then you're a TWO VETTE FAMILY.

And there's nothing wrong with that. (Except maybe the tire budget.)

My wife was seriously bent out of shape when I bought the first vette without her prior approval. I _made_ her drive it to work the next day. (Big mistake). She whipped a couple of teeage boys in a camaro and that was all she wrote.

Now I have to make _my_ 89 faster than _her_ 98.

Buying two might not help we have two and they're both MINE :D :D :D He wanted #2 to be an auto so he could drive it to work, but luckily for me we fell in love with the Ruby and it just happened to be a stick :D :D :D
