Yeah, Hertz is paying the price for their terrible balance sheet that left no room for error. Avis bonds are pretty distressed too (trading in the 60's) but ERAC bonds are still trading at par.

That is an awesome find! And it's not black or white: I've rented a dozen Audis over the last few years and almost every single one was white or black. Think I got a rare silver one once.
