I looked into the Hertz GTH for Miami Boat Show (yes planning for Feb. already). and the problem is they only give you 75 miles a day. If you stay local I guess that is ok but it was a doller a mile for anything above 75.

I reserved a regular Mustang convert. for half the price and unlimited miles. Not the same, but still fun.

I am in Palm Beach....I see the Hertz Mustang a lot. Cool car. For something a little better call George at Chariots of Palm Beach... www.chariotsofpb.com 561.640.1090 They have an awsome line of rentals!!!!

Thanks guys!
chariots is fairly reasonable for a boxster.
The GTH may be the most fun and most convenient.
Plus i can get 2 more in there.

I rented one of these cars from Hertz. $400 for the weekend. I was insured for anything though. Wasn't informed of any mileage restrictions.

It looks cool, sounds cool but does not really have any more power than a stock GT Mustang. (5 hp more I think)

Has a Posi rear end, fun for burn outs, sliding side ways getting onto the freeway. Cops notice you, but it really lacks any kick in the pants.

Rides like crap, but in a good way.

Could not get the car much over 120 on the freeways in LA, but it was fun to beat on.

We did the same for last years boat show, but when we got down there they had no Mustang. Ended up having to ride around all weekend in a Toyota Solara! I know a V6 Mustang isn't babe magnet, but it sure would have beaten the Bright RED Solara! haha
