Cheapest & most beautiful way of renting a muscle car?

Hi guys

I am coming to the states for the first time in my life.

From the end of December to the first days of January 2010 I want to take on a road trip with a friend from San Francisco to Vegas.

And since we want the full American experience, we want to rent a true muscle car; Mustang, Camaro, Challenger or something similar. The single important thing: It must have a V8! ;-)

Now I wanted to ask the American guys: What is the cheapest possible way of renting a Muscle Car in the given period (30.12.09 - 6.1.10) and for the drive from SF to Vegas? And what is the most beautiful route to get to Vegas?

Thanks a lot!

I would do the Vette if the weather looks good for your window here.

i can't speak for enterprise rent-a-car as a whole but the one next to my house on PCH in newport beach has a red chevy camaro SS. but i went to the website and i couldn't find anything about a camaro. or any sports car for that matter. but i would advise you to call all the enterprise rent-a-car locations in the san francisco area. hope this helps. and i really hope you find yourself your muscle car! no better way to get a little slice of the U.S.A than to rod trip it in a camaro!

In LA, there is a place that rents out classic muscle cars. I think it is beverly hills rent-a-car. I'm not sure. I've driven by some of the rental places, and have seen classic muscle cars.
