>> Why not just bring your GT Junior with you?
Ha! But the 'sud would be more unique.. and practical, too!

OP: While used/buy/sell may sound reasonable, initially.. during a short travel/trip, you don't want to spend more than 45 mins. - total - of your time to deal with a car problem (and that 45 mins. would be a phone call to the rental office and arrangement for alternative transport or a replacement car).
The risk of torpedoing your vacation is too great. When traveling, you typically want someone else providing the service you need. For cars, if there is an unexpected fender-bender, burst coolant hose or ECU failure, THEY need to act on it - not you.
You are supposed to be waiting under a large sun umbrella, sipping a cold Pepsi (native) or beer (tourist), while your replacement transportation arrives.
If you were staying for a year, then you'd need to bring over the Jr., and probably the 'sud. Or buy, buy, buy at the CaliforniAlfa convention.. rust-free cars for sale as far as the eye can see..
