Of All The Places..

Discussion in 'American Cars' started by 84FordMan, Jul 8, 2006.

  1. Why isn't the Shelby GT-H available for rent in Detroit, the Motor City? Freaking Orlando, Nevada, Washington (the state), Colorado, Massachusettes and Arizona, but no Michigan..
     
  2. maybe cuz they know that the car wont get shot in all those places but in detroit it wont leave the rental place without getting shot and blwn up.
     
  3. Correct Answer.
     
  4. Yeah, for the same reason it isn't for rent in Miami.

    Umm... Did you not read that or something? The red X indicates that Detroit crime is WORSE than the national average.

    Here's Detroit compared to NYC:

    And Miami:

    And Oakland:

    And Newark:

    Just to name a few. Detroit crime is horrendous.
     
  10. It's mostly because they want them in big tourism spots. Not many people are looking for a novelty rental car in Michigan, despite the fact that we are the motor city.

  13. I garuntee you guys that the reason it's not rented in MI has NOTHING to do with crime in Detroit. No one rents a car in downtown Detroit anyways.

  16. Maybe part of the resons why people don't go to Detroit because of the crime.
     
  17. 1. No one rents a car IN detroit
    2. Oakland County about 30 minutes from Detroit is one of the richest places in America
    3. Metro Detroit is not a big tourist spot
    4. People are much more willing to spend upwards of $100 a day on a rental car in places like LA, Vegas, Orlando, etc.
    5. Them not having this car available in Michigan is nothing but pure economics. It has nothing to do with crime.

    It would be the pure economics of replacing a stolen vehicle.
     
  19. You're right, they steal them.

  21. I know, I was just responding to that guy's post.
     
  22. "Metro Detroit is not a big tourist spot"

    I can understand why.
     
  23. It sucks because I was planning on being in Detroit in April and wanted to rent a GT-H, but at that time, the only Shelby available to rent is in Orlando. As much as it appeals to me, flying down to Orlando, just to drive some 1,500 miles up to Detroit doesn't make much economical sense. If Massachusettes or Arizona or Colorado still had them available, I would.
