In our family's case, my oldest son is a couple of years away from being old enough to get a license. He's already been told that, assuming we have the same vehicles then as we do now, he will get to drive the Ford Ranger-he isn't driving the Corvette.
I wish the minimum driving age would be raised to 35. :mhcky21:
