The history of Hertz
The company that would become Hertz was started by a man named Walter L. Jacobs in 1918. He rented out cars from his fleet of Ford Model Ts. Today, Hertz is one of the best-known names in car rentals and employs nearly 30,000 people.
Hertz used to let you rent real race cars
Have you ever dreamed of driving a luxury race car? Then you're certainly not alone - lots of people would love to drive a high speed car from one of the top car manufacturers in the world!
And if you were a Hertz customer in the 1960s, then your dream could have come true! For a short period of time, they ran a "rent a racer" program, where you could rent a race car from its fleet that included AMC AMXs, Corvettes, and Jaguar XK-Es.
But the program was short lived - because lots of the cars were later found to be missing their high-powered engines! Sneaky customers would swap out the fancy engine for a regular one, and then give the car back to the rental company. Because the cars' engines wouldn't be inspected unless they were serviced, it was imposible to tell which renter had taken the engine.
