Silver SS (rental car) on the Streets of Atlanta

I had just flown back into Atlanta from Ft. Lauderdale and went to pick up my car at the Airport Marriott. There was a new SS sitting there. The valet said it was a rental (don't know what company). So, I took a coupe of pictures. I thought afterward that I should have gotten a picture of the VIN.

incredible vehicle...why does silver ice metallic look the best?? is it because the cars form and shape looks more like a luxury vehicle than a sports car??? typical sports car colors like red don't look right on the camaro for some reason....red looks right on a ferrari, mustang,corvette...but it doesn't look right on the camaro??

You can buy that at any auto store. It comes in like 20 foot lengths rolled up. It helps preventing dings on your door edge an other peoples doors.

I agree that silver looks great!
However, Im going Victory Red, because I actually believe it simply sings on the Camaro.
In all honesty, however, I would be just as happy and amazed driving this thing in any color, they all look fantastic. (except Aqua Blue, its a little behind the pack if you ask me)

Sorry, there is still something wrong when you can go rent a new Camaro before all us die hards have received ours.

Well, then again I guess Avis has the cash so why can't they get a bunch of them.

Oh well, still just waiting for mine.

I think GM gave Avis a couple of SS Camaro's first because they are hoping some of the people that rent it will fall in love with it. Then later go out and buy it. Hertz did the same thing with the GT500 I believe. But that still doesn't make it right. They need to be filling the pre-orders first.

I just went online to try and get one for DFW airport, they don't have them. I called and the guy said that many of the "specialty" cars are for rent in more "touristy" locations like CA and FL.

However, he was obviously not a fan or he would have had exact details!

Oh well. I'll keep trying. I would have rented one for this weekend.

wtf

Kind of ticks me off that people who haven't even paid attention or put the time into considering a Camaro ever...are going to be able to simply check it off on a paper and get to drive something that i have been waitin for for 2 years.

But hey...I would definetly pay 200 bucks for a day to drive an SS around...They better not check the tires after i give it back to them lol.

Actually those stangs they gave hertz were hertz only cars....Ford didnt sell those version to the public. They only came in black with gold striping...My father rented one...he didn't like it at all. He said it was just a ramped up mustang.

And they were kinda the basis for the GT500....The GT-H is the hertz edition. I dont believe that the GT500 was made yet. They were damn expensive to rent to

They were rated at 325 hp...hardly anything worth 100 a day

You know what, now that I think about it. Your right!! Sorry about that. Shelby just modified the Mustang GT engine and renamed it. They later came out whith the GT500.
