Does anyone lease out their car for special events?
Received something through Haggerty about Driveshare:
"DriveShare™ is a car-sharing platform where listers can rent out their fun cars for all kinds of occasions: date nights, beach days, weddings and even film productions. Film studios are looking to rent special cars for their productions all the time — putting a little extra cash in your pocket for this car, another car or another another car."
Wondering if anyone here does that and your experience.
What would be the daily rate for FGF?
Looks like driveshare takes a 35% fee but covers insurance.
I couldnt imagine letting someone renting my car for the day. I've driven this thing for 40 years and I can barely control it. At the very least the clutch would be burned up in short order. I know people who have rented their cars out for movies, commercials, music videos, photo shoots but usually nobody else drives them. Give me the willies just thinking about it.
Hagerty has been advertising that for the last few years. But I'm not buying. Can't imagine what someone else could screw up.
I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not sure. I feel like I am diagonally parked in a parallel universe. 1968 400 convertible (Scarlet) 1968 400 coupe - R/A clone (Blue Pearl) (for sale) 1968 350 - 4 speed 'vert - 400 clone (the beast!) 1968 350 convertible - Wife's car now- 400 clone (Aleutian Blue) (Blue Angel) 1967 326 convertible - Sold 2008 Durango - winter beater 1980 T/A SE Bandit - Sold 2008 GXP - New one from NH is AWESOME! 2017 Durango Citadel - Modern is nice!

"sentimentally" says Jeff. Yep! My '68 was my first car and been mine for over 50 years. I cringe as I watch a mechanic drive it into their repair bay let alone let it out of my sight for a stranger.
There is a guy I know here who is a coordinator for arranging classic cars for TV and movie filming in the Chicago area. I have seen friends' cars in some scenes that he has arranged. I might consider that if and only if I was the person driving it.
Could be as simple as somebody spilling a soda or a coffee on the carpet. Or sitting in the seat with something sharp in the back pocket. So many possibilities and all of them bad just for a few bucks. Who pays for the wear and tear on my tires, or other parts, from some jackass doing burn outs for his friends?
