The Mercedes was an absolute dream. It ran perfectly, was very clean and had an updated sound system with Bluetooth which was very convenient. Would definitely recommend. Perfect cruiser for Palm Springs.

Thomas is an excellent host and has a unique stable of various car styles, all in top condition. He is gracious and very communicative. Driving this '82 Benz was more like floating around town. Thanks Thomas.

Thomas was amazing. He hand delivered the car to us at the airport and was waiting for us when we returned. This car is the perfect Palm Springs car. Make sure you watch the video so you know how to take the top down and back up. It’s manual and though it’s easy, you have to do it in a specific sequence. We can’t say enough about the service Thomas gave us. He is kind and a great communicator. We will definitely rent from him again when we are in Palm Springs!
