Avis rental locations with Camaros available? Cost?

First post - looking forward to driving a new Camaro SS.

There have been a couple of threads with a link to the Avis sites show the Camaro as a specialty car but when I click on make a reservation it requires a city first. I've tried several cities but none show Camaros as a rental selection.

Let's put a list of cities and rental locations together where Camaros can be rented and the daily cost which will vary according to local taxes and airport fees. The list will grow as cars are shipped out to the rental sites.

Thanks!

I have been trying most of the morning but to no avail. I know for sure that there are none in Arizona right now and they do not know when they will be getting some.

I gotta think Avis has an agreement with GM to allow rental of the 2010 Camaro on or after the May 6th date...maybe.

I'm hoping they'll have some manual SS's out there, but not counting on it.

I think the states that actually have it available are very few and even the ones that have it probably only have 1 in the state. It looks like they will be SS models but I promise you that they will be automatic transmissions ONLY. Hell all of their Corvettes are automatics, no way they are gonna get a manual Camaro.

Tried the Atlanta airport, no luck.

I'll try a few major cites each day until one pops up.

The Bush Intl Airport in Humble, Tx has a Camaro. I tried renting it this past weekend but not 25 (2 months). Called said they had it ready, got there then told it wasnt ready yet. Walked the lot it was parked in the back behind some H3's. They look a lot better in person, really like the SIM. Its a SIM SS with the 2-tone grey. Cant remember if it has the RS package.

No rental company in North America rents out manual vehicles anymore-probably because people were renting them just to learn how to drive stick(like i tried to do)

Avis is waiting for there cars just like everyone else.
Once they come in there most likely will be advertisements like Hertz did with the Mustang.

I'm guessing that's the one I saw this morning parked out in front of the Marriott Hotel in the Galleria area then. Lots of people in town this week for the Offshore Technology Conference. I'll have to remember to bring my camera with me tomorrow morning in case it's still there.

Traveling to Washington, D.C. and wasn't going to get a car. Heard about Avis and checked, found the same as everyone else. I will rent one there next week if they show, if not, I'll stick to the transit system.

Checked all the ones in Pittsburgh, Pa.

Nada. At least not yet. I'm actually going to stop by one I've done business with before and inquire about the Camaros tomorrow. If I get any information that hasn't allready been posted, I'll be sure to let everyone know.

We had one running around town. The person got it form the DWF airport and I do not know how much it costs.

Shouldn't be too hard - #1 rule - vary the RPMs. No problem there...idle->redline->idle->redline...repeat!
