Arrow NEWS: First Chevy Camaro Rental Car Spotted At Avis! [Rental Cars]

Click the image to open in full size.We spotted this Avis Chevy Camaro rental car yesterday in midtown Manhattan on our way to the train station. Want to rent it for a weekend? It'll cost more than a monthly lease.

While walking down 43rd St on the way from Jalopnik's Manhattan HQ to Grand Central, we spotted this red Camaro sitting right out front of the Avis rental place. After doing a double take we stepped inside to ask what it would cost to take this V6-powered Camaro out for a day or week and were surprised to hear that the rental rate's over $220 for a day and over $700 for a weekly rental on the new bowtied mullet-mobile. Obviously that's a New York rental car pricing, but even for New York it's highway robbery.

Shocking and awe-ing us even more was the news that this particular Avis, which had three Camaros added to their fleet last Friday, have only been able to keep the one out front — and only for half a day on Friday and a few hours yesterday. That means they've already made over $1000 on the three cars in just three days. How's that for a tidy little profit?

We called up Chevy PR and they told us the rental deal's exclusive with Avis as well as giving us a cute little anecdote about a renter who's already bought up one of the Camaros delivered to another New York area Avis after taking it out for just a day. Well, whatever — all we know is at this price point we won't be renting one any time soon. We guess we'll just have to wait to see if GM's able to come through with a month-long "mid-term" loan for us on a Bumblebee-yellow Camaro SS with an RS appearance package.

I'm so damn sick of this "mullet-mobile" crap. Jalopnik has used this phrase repeatedly, I'm starting to check and see if it's always the same author. I see Ray Wort is the author of this article.

yep, looks like Ray Wert is the repeated "mullet mobile" user. Others had mentioned it too, but he seems to in almost everything he writes regarding the camaro.

Good to see the guys over at Jalopy have some original writing techniques
