So I have a roommate who wanted to travel a state away to see family. He would be gone for a week and instead of renting a car I was almost like you could take my car. however, I got to thinking and wondered if its standard practice to do that. It got me feeling a bit uncomfortable since I wouldnt be with the car for awhile and what would happen if they got into an accident or damaged it.
I would never let anyone drive my 71 Dodge Charger. Only an idiot would let someone drive their classic car o_o
Well, rationally speaking assuming there is proper insurance involved that will cover anything that could happen during the trip and that he is a mostly responsible guy who will take responsibility for just about anything that could happen (including cleaning it depending on what happens, new dents or scratches and gas cost) then there is no reason to not lend it as the car wouldn't be exposed to risks its not exposed to with you and you can presumably do without the car for that time.
That said, its still really hard to actually go through with this. I don't think I would be comfortable even asking for a car... I guess being coherent can be entirely different from being logical lol.
