How many on this site have a red Hertz?
« on: February 12, 2020, 08:27:53 PM »
Intellectual curiosity drives the question.  Also, gold stripes or no gold stripes?

Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

There weren't many to begin with and I suspect a few got wrecked along the way.

I had one - originally no stripes. I figure it's already in your survey.

They are around.  I've not seen many.  The one you saw, does it have stripes over the top or not.  I get into approach-avoidance conflicts on occasion whether I should have put the stripes on or not.  Mine came without stripes ever.  Oh well, the next owner can decide when the car gets parted out from my estate.  You know it will.  Happens all the time...One's own interests are not necessarily the interests of the next generation.  That's why we have archaeological digs for vanished cities and civilizations.  Things get forgotten and buried with the passage of time.  Sad but true.

Best,

Mine came out of Covina California.  It seems that the red is mostly a west coast color.  I can stand to be corrected if anyone out there has a different take.  I could also check my registry.  All the pages are still intact so I handle it with kid gloves.

Red 66s that were at last LASAAC show at SA in Gardena 2019. 834 - non Hertz and factory stripes & 84? - Hertz no mention of stripes in registry. 846 and 843 were both delivered to LAX Hertz from HiPerf Motors on the same day. I've always wondered if the LAX Hertz cars actually went to HiPerf to be delivered or were just driven around the corner from 6501 Imperial.
I have heard that none of the red Hs got LeMans stripes from the factory. Howard could probably clear that up. They do however look correct with the stripes and certainly stop all the questions of why didn't you put the stripes back on when you repainted? Your explanations of it never had them would certainly be called BS by 99% of the automotive world.

Yes, 843 looks right with the stripes.  Owner added option.  Whosoever gets 843 after me can remove at their leisure if they like.

Sent you a PM, got a question about 846.

I have one believe its 973 but I would need to double-check the number. Mine was bought out of Kentucky years ago but was very original with one repaint. It doesn't have stripes now but did come with them originally. Im in Va
