    He’s working at a car dealer now as a lot boy. He said he’s getting some stick time (literally) with some of the cars he has to drive to the gas station or from point to point on their lot. I haven’t worked much with him on our stick shift Cruze, since I bought him a 2001 Camaro that cost me $1,100. He’s probably ready for the Vette. His 21 year old sister loves to drive it. It’s a 7 speed.

    Waxed and vacuumed. Tires were already properly inflated. I asked him if he wanted to drive it with me. He turned me down! He said he was going hiking with his girlfriend.

    He drinks a little bit at home, but he’s not old enough to be out in public with it.

    After he auditions with me, he won’t have to choose! He’s probably already capable of handling it. I just haven’t seen it yet.
