The New Shelby GT-H

Well I stopped by Hertz yesterday and talked to the workers of possibly renting the Special Edition Shelby. Apparently the only way to get these cars is to rent them from the airport and must provide a ticket showing departure or arrival from the airport. Other then that, there is no way to drive these cars. I was really bummed out when I heard this. Does this apply to everyone or is it just in California?

Take a trip to Vegas and have some fun! I have a friend who works for Hertz here and couldn't pull any strings for me? At $150-$250 a day they can shove em' up their arse!

Interesting side note - my freind said her manager had rented one to a Surgeon and wished she got his # 'cause he was cute. Well, couple days later it came back on a flatbed - totalled. She has all his numbers now!

Peace....The MadMan :smoke:

The new Mustang Monthly mag has a Reader Feedback article from a guy who rented one of the Shelby GT-Hs and entered it into a Shelby car show and won class but also Best in Show. Then Monday afternoon he hit a deer.

He had GT-H #13, go figure.
