Sometimes the Secret Service acts like over-protective parents when it comes to its protectees.

Vice President Joe Biden complains in the October issue of Car and Driver Magazine that the Secret Service won’t let him drive around town in his beloved 1967 green Corvette.

“The Secret Service won’t let me drive it. I’m not allowed to drive anything. It’s the one thing I hate about this job. I’m serious,” Biden tells the magazine, according to ABC News.

The magazine reported that Biden still gets a bit of drive time in his driveway. He recently test drove his brother’s 556-horsepower Cadillac.

“He brought it down for me to eat my heart out,” Biden said, according to the magazine. “So I got in. I have a driveway that’s about 1,700 feet long. I knew the Secret Service wouldn’t let me drive it outside. So I jumped on that sucker and laid rubber.  A great feeling. That thing could probably beat my Corvette.”
