Avis

My new cougar has a stamp under neath the trunk that says Avis in pink lettering. I saw a 30th anniversary cougar last year that had the same stamp in the same spot. I thought it was a rental car and the company puts that stamp there for some reason. I pulled car fax and my car was never a rental it was a one owner car from a old guy and the other car I saw was never a rental. Anyone know what that stamp is and why it's there.

Maybe a woman named Avis on the production line?

The Avis stamp has been discussed in the past without a satisfactory answer.

My best guess is that they were ordered by Avis as a fleet and for some reason not all cars were actually used in the rental fleet. Company cars for Avis employees perhaps?
