He may be talking about a rental setup like Zip Car where the car is
parked on the street, not at a rental office.
OTOH, it may be a good idea to buy shares in a car. It has been done
with aircraft for years giving you a certain number of hours use. In a
big city it could work for the occasional driver..
I don't lend my car to anyone, even family.

I am surprised at the number of participants in the high tech business,
most in their twenties and early thirties, who routinely use services
like Zipcar and Airbnb as a matter of course.
Menards will rent you a Ford pickup (at least around here) for something
like $20 for 75 minutes. Good enough to get a refrigerator home, but
something loose and bulky like landscape stone might take longer to load
I haven't needed to rent one yet, but just the plates for a year in IL will
cost you 5 times the rental cost of the truck. Add insurance and you can
rent the truck 10-20 times before it's cheaper than owning one.
Ah, I missed that. I thought it was a standard rental. I rented a
car a couple of weeks ago (will do it again next week). I had to
put[*] 2-1/2 gallons of gas in it, at $4.09/gallon (Lew should love
that data point ;).
[*] Boss had to pay ;-)
