HERTZ LE­GENDS

Muscle Car Review - - Letters -

Felt com­pelled to ex­pand on the myth­sand-le­gends part of your great ar­ti­cle on the G.T. 350H (“Hertz So Good,” Aug. 2018). At a young age of 23 back in 1965, I lived at the dragstrip ev­ery week­end. English­town (Madi­son Town­ship Race­way Park) had just opened. My friends and I would ei­ther be rac­ing or spec­tat­ing at one of their great Sun­day shows. To get to the track from the north you would use the New Jersey Turn­pike and drive past Ne­wark Air­port. At that time, Hertz had its stor­age yard bor­der­ing the turn­pike at the air­port. Ev­ery time we passed this lot dur­ing the 1965-1966 sea­son there would be two or three wrecked Hertz G.T. 350s sit­ting in the yard. At the track there would be at least one or two rac­ing ev­ery week­end and win­ning. As time went on we saw less and less of them at the track or the stor­age yard. There is truth to that part of the le­gends and myths. Thanks for a great book.
