My Daughter helped me build the car (16 at the time), i take her to the County park and let her drive it, has not had it on the streets yet but she is very respectful of it's power and the time we have in building it. The wife drove it the first week i got it on the road up to the local ice cream places thursday cruise in, on the way up there this idiot turns left right in front of us at a 45 roll, she had to mash the brakes, locked up short and she feathered it and veered just enough to let him get his ass in gear. Needless to say i was overcome with quite a few strong emotions ranging from "catch him...", "I Must have installed the new power disc brakes right...Check", "I hope the insurance check got processed", "#*$... i just painted it". But the overwhelming one was pride in the way she handled it, when we got to the icecream place she tossed me the keys and says, "i'm good". She has always driven my cars since we were 16. Had a ratty FAST nova that she used to always want to take her sister to work in, even though she had a nearly new truck. Come to find out years later that they were racing it up Telegraph road, just for kicks. Either way it's just a possession and they are made to drive and fully insured, stick car is a different story these days but she learned on and prefers to drive a stick so i would have no problem.
I am building her a Fox mustang 5-speed right now, should be a fun change of pace.
