GT-H 'er Done! First Burnout Vid Of New Hertz Shelby

For the first ever time caught on camera, the kids over at Streetfire have captured burnout footage of the new just-for-Hertz Shelby GT-H. Mmm...we love the smell of home-grown hoonage in the afternoon. Smells like...burning 18" Goodyears. [Hat tip to Autoblog] » 8/29/06 4:45pm 8/29/06 4:45pm

Jalopnik Rental-Car Reacharound, Short Form: The Shelby Mustang GT-H
