I know when I was younger it was the best feeling to get the keys from my dad and go cruising in his BMW M alone. I drove it reasonably well...never did excessive speeding, burnouts, etc. That said, do any of you let your sons, brothers, etc, take the Lotus out? I have a lot of trust within my immediate family (we're close) and would have no problem in them borrowing the car as long as they treat it with respect and don't hammer it. Anyone have similar thoughts? Bad stories? I draw the line with my immediate family though. Friends have to be accompanied by me if they are to ever drive it.
