Smile Anyone know????

Ok - Hertz, the rental-car company, raised the hair on a lot of necks when it announced a year ago that it would rerun its genius business scheme of four decades ago, wherein 1000 specially prepared 66 Shelby GT350 Mustangs were purchased and then rented to enthusiasts and the star-struck for hefty premiums. The car was called the Shelby GT-H (for Hertz), and it gained the company a ton of publicity, but not all of it favorable, as it turned out. Soon stories were told with s******s about cars that had been rented and then raced, and how choice performance parts were flying off the GT-Hs and finding their way into more humble Mustangs.

Anyone know of someone (unless it was you) who's done something like this? Or done this exact same thing? Let me know, this is an interesting story

Re: Anyone know????

Yes...I do know of several that have rented and raced the GT-H. However, since the stories are all public, I will leave it up to you to use google to find them. However, you will be happy to know, they have been found out...and did have to make amends for it.

BTW...kinda like Herb said....quite and interesting first of 4 posts.

Re: Anyone know????

i steal a gt-h a week, why take the parts when u can have the entire car?? then i drive it across country smuggling drugs from here to cali all the while i am prostituting myself for more money and more drugs.

i also commit hate crimes during my journey. hate crimes against cars that i hate.





and if you believed any of what i just typed, then you are in serious need of getting your head checked.

Well...that story would explain why your car is surrounded by police cars with their lights on.

Re: Anyone know????

Ok - My director told me he heard of this story and wanted to use it for our portal, so I was basically looking for general information on the subject. I'm not a cop, I'm in advertising. The e-mail from my boss is attached below:


There was a great story about a guy who rented a GT-H from Hertz and took it to Mustang rallies, winning awards, and then ran into a deer. I dunno how to find that story.

Let's get this distributed in some manner to the creative and digital folk soon.


So that's why I asked this question in teh first place. Didn't mean to offend anyone.

I once rented a Chevy Something-or-other one time, if that counts for anything. I really don't know any stories of what you are asking about.

BUT... If you are looking for stories, I've got a good one. It's the story of the greatest road trip ever taken. Check it out: http://www.mustangevolution.com/forum/t21335/

I once rented a Kia Spectra. I didn't get to take it to the track, though. I'm betting on a 13. Maybe a 14.

Oh my goodness, do you really think if I had found all sorts of info on google or yahoo in this I'd even bring it up in here? I need factual stories, not blogs about it or "I heard form this person, who heard from this person" type crap. I'm good at my job, hence, I join forums and try and get real, factual, first-hand stories about what Mustang enthusiasts do with their cars that's unique and interesting. Google and yahoo only get you so far in this life, you need to find other sources and outlets that are informative if you want to get anything other than news stories that everyone has access to, being good at my job, I know that. . .

Now that's the reaction I was looking for Most of the member weren't even born when the 66 GT-H was released You might want to try getting in touch with Carroll Shelby - The Official Website or here Shelby Forums Home

the GT-H thing is just a stock GT with looks... no real parts worth taking from it.

Re: Anyone know????

So you all will be happy to know that I was finally able to track down, through an old friend, someone who's done this before Not someone who's stolen parts or anything, but rented a GT-H, raced it and won at Ford Fun Weekend events last season. So I got my first-hand account of this story afterall folks! Thank you to everyone who posted words of encouragement though. . . you kow who you are
