Thank you for keeping us informed. It's good to hear that he is now on the mend. Hoping for a quick, speedy recovery!

Thanks Pete, I knew the cars went to Northwestern. Just thought this might have been a promotional at Gotham with Playboy Bunnies. By the way, that is a GREAT vintage picture.


When I first say the Playboy logo on her blouse, I immediately thought of the 10 Playboy convertibles. There was only one that was white with saddle interior and that was #2476 a GT-500. Is it possible that this was that car?

Thanks for getting the word out. I received the same scam message. Knew immediately that it wasn't from the member whose name was used. Keep up the good work fellows!

Been there and done that. 5 way bypass in December 2008 and still hanging in there today at 73 years. I hope that your surgical team will be as good as the one that I had. Also, a special thank you to Stanford Medical Center for a second opinion regarding a need for follow up surgery that was not necessary. I am sending our prayers and best wishes for a full and speedy recovery to you. You will do fine.


JD - No problem, the number that I have is 653. I think you just transposed the numbers.

Hope this helps.


JD - I just had a chance to check my spreadsheet to verify my numbers against yours. I believe your April number is a typo. We agree on every other month listed. Glad others are tracking this information so that we can share data. I appreciate all your input on these issues.

Randy, mine was also California car (Los Angeles) and was not painted. It could have been a Hertz thing like the tape on the radiator perhaps.

I don't believe that all Hertz cars mirrors were painted red. I am not sure if it has been determined the reason why some were red and others not. Maybe someone can clarify.

Thanks Shawn. The original owner of 1807 was Robert F. Smith Jr. - Fort Bliss, TX. It was shipped to Texas by SAI on 5/7/67.

The follow numbers are the ones that I believe could be a possibility:

GT350 0007, 0080, 0091, 0144, 1399, 1646

GT500 0245, 0264, 0280, 0283, 0328, 1010, 1011, 1614

If someone has other information, please let me know. This was from a quick review of my files.

El Paso Auto Center received 29 cars in 1967. Of those 11 were shipped in June and July. Since the article appears in a June issued magazine, the pictures were probably taken no later that May. That would be a total of 18 cars to be considered as being in the picture. Of the 18 remaining cars 4 were automatic leaving 14 that could be the one in the picture. Of those there were 6 GT350 and 8 GT500 possible as being the car. Sorry that is as close as I can get without more information.

So sorry to hear of your friends passing. Prayers to his family in this time of sorrow.

I know it is a long shot, but does anyone on these forums have a good picture of the Willow Springs corner markers shown in the track footage?

I have been searching for a picture that will show the detail of what was on the signs. If anyone can help me find a picture, it would be greatly appreciated.
