Guidelines

The vehicle cannot sit at idle for long periods of time. Please shut it off to help prevent overheating and save fuel. Under no circumstances can the vehicle be driven off the paved road. This includes dirt roads, gravel roads, dry lake beds etc. If it is returned with dirty or dusty tires, you will be charged a full detail fee. You will be responsible for any towing costs should the vehicle get stuck off road. Vehicle cannot taken outside of the State of Nevada. The vehicle has a GPS tracker and it's location may be monitored during the rental. The vehicle cannot be used to transport passengers or cargo for hire. It cannot be used for towing. It cannot be used for a test, race or contest. The vehicle is not to be used for commercial use including TV/movie production or commercial photography. We have a separate program for commercial use. Please contact us for details. There is no smoking in the vehicle. The vehicle will be delivered to you washed & vacuumed. It needs to be returned in similar condition. You will be charged an additional cleaning fee if the car needs to be washed upon return. The car cannot be run in a machine car wash. They are not designed to wash vintage vehicles. Machine car washes pose a serious risk of damaging the vehicle's paint and/or trim!! The renter is not to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs while driving the vehicle. Vehicle is to carry no more than two passengers. The front seats have only lap belts. We reserve the right to cancel the reservation if we feel that the renter is not comfortable driving the vehicle. This also includes bad weather or extreme heat. Vehicle must be returned with the same fuel level as when picked up. It must be returned clean or cleaning fees will be charged. The Thunderbird is a great running and driving classic car. However, it is 63 years old!! In order to keep it running great, we continually perform needed repairs and maintenance. While rare, it sometimes forces us to cancel a reservation. We do our very best to give you as much notice as possible so you may reschedule.

Faqs

  • Does the Thunderbird have a stereo?
    Unfortunately, the old AM radio gave out a long time ago. We recommend you bring your own music player and portable speaker.
  • I have never driven a classic car, is there anything I need to know?
    Definitely! Driving a classic car can be vastly different from newer cars. We want you to be comfortable behind the wheel. We require that you allow an extra 30 minutes during pick up to allow us to walk you through the starting and driving experience with the car.
  • Can I pick up or drop off the car after hours?
    No. Being a specialty car, we are only available 8:00am - 4:00pm seven days a week. This allows us to both inspect the car and give you a brief orientation on starting and driving the car.
  • Does the Thunderbird have air conditioning?
    The Thunderbird does not have air conditioning. It is very hot in Las Vegas during the summer and daytime temperatures can exceed 100 degrees. Please be sure to pack lots of extra water and sunscreen!!
  • We want to take some photos in the desert or on one of the dry lake beds. Can we take the car out to some of these off road locations?
    Absolute NOT! Sorry but we have had issues with damage and dirt from taking the car off the paved road. Many of the roads to some of the desert sights are treacherous and can cause damage to the vehicle. Also there is a high risk of the car getting stuck. The tow cost to rescue the vehicle would be very expensive to you. If the car is returned with dirty or dusty tires, you will be charged for full detail & cleaning fee.
  • Can my spouse or friends drive the car too?
    Only if you add them as an approved driver. In order to do so, they would have to have their own Turo account and you would need to add them as a driver. This applies to spouses as well. Otherwise only the person whose name the reservation is in would be allowed to drive the car.

Great first experience with Turo, Michael was perfect to work with. I was trying to book a last minute car for my wedding and got a little worried about getting approved for my Turo account in time but it went through and Michael really helped with the last minute booking.

First of all what an amazing car!!! Add to that, Michael going over details on how to operate the vehicle. When we were all done cruising the strip, he arranged for us to be able to drop it off early (at my request) on a Friday night after closing. Thank you for going above and beyond to make our wedding photos AWESOME!!!
