Hemmings Motor News Blog

Hemmings Motor News has been around since 1954. We're proud of our heritage, but we're also more than the Hemmings full of classifieds that your father subscribed to. Aside from new editorial content every month in Hemmings, we have three monthly magazines: Hemmings Muscle Machines, Hemmings Classic Car and Hemmings Sports and Exotic Car.

While our editors traverse the country to find the best content for those magazines, we find other oddities related to the old-car hobby that we really had no place for - until now. With this blog, we're giving you a behind-the-scenes look at what we see and what we do during the course of putting out some of the finest automotive magazines you'll ever read.

A Brief History of Hertz Rent-A-Racers From the Shelby GT350H to Today

Posted October 01, 2019 9:00 AM by dstrohl

It started when Carroll Shelby, ever the salesman, convinced Hertz to order 1,001 Ford Mustangs modified by his shop for a “Rent-A-Racer” program in 1966. The Shelby G.T.350H was born, and the legend grew almost as soon as the cars began hitting the track and dragstrip. It took 40 years for Hertz to try again, returning with another Shelby Mustang and adding a few more restrictions to the rental agreement. Since then, the Hertz special cars have come at a regular cadence, each one slightly altered from stock and produced in limited numbers, capped by the latest 2020 Hertz-Hendrick Motorsports Camaros. Here’s a rundown of all ten crs that wore the black and yellow paint scheme plus one bonus car.

Rentable, sporty whips made just for Hertz.
