In September of 1918, the 22 year old pioneer of rent-a-car vehicles, Walter L. Jacobs, started a rent a car company in Chicago. Beginning with only 10 Ford Model T cars, which he himself serviced and painted, Jacobs was able to advance rapidly and within five years achieve a yearly income of over $ 1 million.
In 1923, Jacobs sold the company to John Hertz, president of the “Yellow Cab and Yellow Truck and Coach Manufacturing Company”. Nevertheless, Jacobs remained at Hertz as a senior executive member. In 1926, the Company, under the name of Drive-Ur-Self System, passed into the hands of General Motors, after John Hertz had bought Yellow Truck.
