"As rusty as it is, and as ugly as it is, there is so much good here." Rick Parker and his team from Signature Auto Classics, in Columbus, Ohio, were working with a pickaxe and shovels to dig out a 1966 Shelby G.T.350-H that had been parked in a backyard for nearly 40 years. The registration on the plate expired in 1981.

The entire car had sunk into the mud and might not have been worth the trouble except it was a real Shelby, one of the 936 G.T.350-H models that Shelby-American produced in the Rent-A-Racer program. Most being automatic, these rental cars were once deemed slightly watered down and thus not destined to be as desirable as a basic four-speed 1966 G.T.350. Perhaps the wondrous black-with-gold paint stripe scheme, and the oddity of a real Shelby being available for $19.95 a day is what has put this car on a collector pedestal.

We throw in some details about the Audi E-Tron, Jaguar I-Pace and Mercedes-Benz EQC, too.But Tesla isn't the only automaker that should be worried about the new kid on the block. With its recently announced $59,900 starting price, 275-mile range and slick, Google-based infotainment system, the Polestar 2 brings a lot to the table.

Parked since 1981 and left outside in a yard in Ohio, this rare '66 Shelby GT 350 - H originally served duty as a very special Hertz rental car . Derek, the Mustang owners' other son, met us at the house and told us that his parents bought this Shelby from Hertz in Ashland, Ohio, just 42 miles north.

Parker took this photo in the spring of 2015 when he first visited with the family about what to do with the Shelby they bought from Hertz.

This adventure began in 2015 when Mike Charles walked into Signature Auto Classics and told his friend Rick Parker he had found "a Shelby in the woods."

Rick and Mike drove 50 miles to Mount Vernon, Ohio, where the Mustang slumbered in a backyard on a tract of land where the car wasn't visible from the street or the rear of the house. They knocked on the door, but nobody was home. Rick's wife, Jacquie, wrote a letter to the address. A couple weeks later, Jacquie got a call from Carol Delano.

"Carol called and told me she has had tree trimmers there, and gas meter people, and UPS (asking about the car), but nobody had ever written her a letter. She invited us up, and we spent several hours with her on a Saturday," says Rick.

Jaguar E-Type Lays Dormant for 40 Years, Gets Glorious Restoration

  Jaguar E-Type Lays Dormant for 40 Years, Gets Glorious Restoration We love barn finds, but even the perfect barn find could take a lot of work to properly revive. Take this 1964 Jaguar E-Type, an example from the middle of the Series 1 production run with the smaller 3.8-liter XK inline-six that was parked in 1979. It looks pretty good in the barn photos—dusty, dirty, but relatively dry and complete—but nothing sits in the U.K. for four decades without needing some attention. 1/26 SLIDES © Automobile Magazine Staff 1964-Jaguar-E-Type-Barn-Find-2.jpg 2/26 SLIDES © Automobile Magazine Staff 1964-Jaguar-E-Type-Barn-Find-3.

"I took an iPad and showed her my car because I also have a 1966 G.T.350-H—in better shape. She was impressed that we really did have interest in saving the car, not as a quick flip," says Jacquie.

Rick and Jacquie told Carol they had a restoration business and, "If we can help you, [let us know]," and didn't try to buy the car.

Five years later, they got the chance. Everett, one of the owner's two sons, wanted to restore the car and hired Rick to assess the cost to repair the rust.

Back at Signature Auto Classics, Jacquie opened the reference photos. Rick singled out a picture under the hood and said, "Here's one of the things we're concerned about tomorrow. This is where the steering box bolts." Rust revealed breaks in the unibody, which compromised extraction, to the extent Rick told us, "We are worried about the car splitting apart."

Backyard Barn Find 1966 Shelby G . T . 350 - H Hertz Rental Car Parked Since 1981 . Cranky Chevy 350 Distributor Install is Late at Top Dead Center.

Feature Car Friday! The 1965 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350. I know we did a Mustang recently, but in honor of the Mustang's 57th birthday today, here's another! This G . T . 350 - H Hertz rental car was parked since 1981 . It was found and rescued and waiting for a restoration.

That's why Rick called Cal's Towing for help. Rick brought his four employees, as well. He didn't need "eight people to go move this car, but it's an adventure for the younger employees to see what it's like out there."

Larry, Randy (aka Mongo), Blake, and Sean were enthused to drop their restoration work for an afternoon adventure "in the trenches," which proved literal as they dug under the car.

Derek, the owners' other son, met us at the house and told us that his parents bought this Shelby from Hertz in Ashland, Ohio, just 42 miles north. His mom, Carol, drove this Shelby to work and as a result was "one of the more popular elementary school teachers."

The black paint was still original, as were those gold stripes. Rusty hood hinges allowed prying up the hood "about 10 inches."

Once the car was loaded on the rollback, we headed south to Rick's shop in Columbus where a crowd gathered. Rick trained his flashlight on the engine bay to reveal the 289, which looked like a stock Cobra engine. Rick had already seen the Shelby VIN tag when he first pried up the hood four years ago. Then he pointed out the dual-point distributor, special four-blade radiator fan, open-element air cleaner, and the Ford Autolite 4100 series carburetor with its manual choke (a $2,500 carburetor at a swap meet and very hard to find). The header-like cast iron exhaust manifolds had been replaced with a set of headers, which appeared to be vintage Cyclones.

Hertz bankruptcy turns into $11B standoff in court over used car fleet

  Hertz bankruptcy turns into $11B standoff in court over used car fleet The rental car giant and its creditors don't agree on what will become of its nearly 500,000 vehicles.Bloomberg reported Wednesday the 494,000 used vehicles are tied to a master lease, further tied to Hertz's asset-backed securities. Typically, when a company with this type of ABS files for bankruptcy, the entity must accept or reject the master lease. That's not what Hertz wants to do in this case.
