Default Huge request asap - Vegas crew

Hi everybody

I broke my heart today. I am visiting Vegas, from Denmark (Europe) and I am only here until tomorow. One of the things I was looking extremely forward to, was to rent a Cobra at Dream Retal on Vegas Blv. So my brother and I went there today. But there was a problem. They had changed their prices, and insurance cost, so I no longer could afford it.

So I ask here now. Is there anybody who wants to earn 50$ or something like that, so I can drive a Cobra for real. I dont care if it is in a parking lot or something like that. I also doesnt matter if it is just for 5-10 min. I do expect you to come along with me on the drive.

PS. I am 40 years old. Have not had a accident what so ever in 21 years - and I am a licensed truckdriver as well.

If this sounds like something you think is possible, than sent me a PM, and I will sent you my phonenumber. Than we can talk a bit more about the details.

This company has a location in California. They have multiple locations, but who knows whether they have multiple cars. Perhaps they just have 1 Cobra replica and move it between locations.

Shelby Vintage Rental Cars | Imagine Lifestyles Luxury Rentals

I got a $99 deal (through groupon) for a 1 hour rental out of their New Jersey location that I reserved for two weeks from now, so if they actually only have 1 car, it may be on the wrong side of the country for you to rent it.

As you can see a full day cost $599. The 1 hour rate is not listed on their site. I don't know if you can just call them up and ask for a 1 hour rental or whether that was just a special deal through groupon.

To give you a true and accurate taste of the Cobra experience, the car needs to break down when you're out in the middle of nowhere. They'd probably charge you extra for that though.

Part of the hour, there is supposed to be an explanation of the car. Someone from the company rides "shotgun" in the passenger seat.

Hi again everybody.

Thanks for the replies so far. My day totally got messed up. My brother broke his tooth so everything got totally messed up. I never got back out there to Dream Rental. I had to go back to Riverside, where we will be until this weekend or something like that.

As for the insurrance from Dream Rental. Their price was 5 hours for the car alone 250$ - including insurrance 489$ for 5 hours. And if you drove more than 100 miles, you would pay an extra 3$ pr mile or something like that. So it was simply not possible for me to try it.

As for LA Shelby Rental. I have sent them a mail just now, and will contact them tomorrow again. Hopefully I will be able to try it out.

PS. We went to see the Shelby American Museum. Wow, what a treat. It was simply awesome. To get the tour and everything. What an experience.

Michael
