I took my Dad to his first car show today at the ripe old age of 81!
The show is an annual event in the beautiful Berkshire Downs village of Yattendon, only a few vehicles of American origin but nonetheless a nice local show in a lovely location with proceeds going to support the local Air Ambulance.
One of the interesting exhibits was a Shelby 350H Mustang Hertz Rent a Racer, this looked genuine but I couldn’t check as I didn’t see the owner in close proximity. Yes, back in the day you could rent one of these beasts from Hertz Rent a Car!
Some background below from Wikipedia, including all shenanigans that went on
When the Hertz cars were returned to Ford to be prepared for sale to the public, the high-performance parts were often “lost” (presumably at the manufacturer) before final sale.
Other American cars that were on show can be seen below
A Chevy Bel Air, Willy’s Jeeps and a Dodge
