Hertz Corvettes - where have you seen one recently?

Since it seems to be very hard to find corvettes, I'm hoping to make a thread that lists where people have seen them. I'm hoping to do a weekend vacation soon where we rent a corvette, but it's hard to figure out where my options for going to do that are. I'm particularly interested if anyone found one on the eastern half of the US, but I'll keep it US-wide.

So please list:
Where you saw or rented a corvette
Whether it was a ZHZ (the yellow/black coupe), a convertible, or a regular coupe
If you actually rented it, if it was in decent shape.

Keep it to sightings/rentals within the last few months, although if it was within a year or so I'd still be interested in hearing about it just mention when it was.

Confirmed current via website:

SAN - San Diego
Convertible

LAX - Los Angeles

SFO - San Francisco

MCO - Orlando

FLL - Fort Lauderdale

MIA - Miami

TPA - Tampa

There was one at the Hyatt Century Plaza in LAX (yellow and black convertible) It was dropped off at San Diego airport
But that was the end of January

I checked online after - it was a two car upgrade - but the Hertz at the Hyatt didn't list a corvette as a rental option

Thanks, looks like san diego airport has them so that might be where it came from (or LAX). Added to the list.

Rented a ZHZ Convertible at MIA in November and TPA in September.

Spotted a ZHZ Convertible in Coconut Grove, Miami today (could be from FLL or MIA, possibly PBI).

When was this? I checked the website and it wasn't an option, plus you say coupe and it seems like they're all convertibles now.

LAS - Las Vegas
I rented one 17th feb, had about 35 000 miles on it, a couple of small scratches here and there and the interior door panels were not properly fastened I believe. No impacts on noise when cruising though, only when shutting the passenger door.

There were 4 or 5 more ZHZ Corvettes on the lot when I was there.

to all of you renting the non ZHZ corvette what options did they have? im not expecting you all to be Corvette experts but simple ones like Chrome wheels? Bose stereo? heads up display (speed and revs in windscreen)?

if hertz is listening please give us the COUPE with at least chrome wheels and bose stereo, in normal colors (white, silver, jet. blue, etc) and this will be my new #1 choice....oh yeah unlimited miles too!

and for the list i did a 10 day search for the 2nd week of may in LAX as I have a wedding out there and the ZHZ was an option and actually one of the cheaper ones at that. I would have done the pay later reservation if it wasnt for the silly 100 miles a day limit.
