no, but I frequently give rides to people I see as in need... if you like, see my topic-starter, "can I give you a lift?"

My personal car has to go in for 2 factory recalls. I was just going to do a rental from one of the folk who rent their cars out privately. Some pretty spectacular cars are available. High performance sports cars and luxury sports sedans. Cars I'd never get to sit in let alone drive.

But the dealer is giving me a loaner. A decent enough sports sedan. Free beats a rental.

I'm probably going to rent a pickup from a private party on the rental site. $35 a day. Beats $18/hour from Home Depot. I can take my time picking up some sheetrock, a door, and some roofing shingles. The guy even delivers his truck to my house.

Some jaw dropping cars available locally for private rental. One guy has a 2014 BMW 4Series a 2014 Benz GLK and a Land Rover. He is essentially a private rental company specializing in luxury exotics.

I don't know of any place renting late model exotics like this guy. Let alone for a couple $100 bucks. let alone for 1 day.
