    I am not sure if this will work, but it is worth a shot for you to try.

    Anyone under the age of 18 in the U.S. and who is not considered an emancipated minor is viewed by the law as not being primarily financially responsible for damage done to property. The courts view the parents or legal guardians as responsible for financial loss due to property damage (and medical expenses.) This is what makes me think any chance you will have in renting a car while under the age of 18 will likely require some involvement of your parent or guardian.

    The other suggestions here are rather good, but if you are dead-set on renting a car, the above may be an angle for you to try in this.

    Yeah, there's no comparing quality with quantity. He has gained IMO a status as someone who contributes positively to the board and its denizens. Unlike you (and me) who are definitely post-whores.

    Remember the key: Quality vs. Quantity(PostWhoredom)
    ;)

You'll be driving an unfamilar car in an unfamilar city which is known for some grid lock... Being 16 you probably haven't been driving that long (even if you started driving illegal at 13).

    So why do you need a rental car?
    What about those of us who started driving legally at 13?

    Gotta love them farm states. :-)

    Vegas has decent bus service. There are also a few free trams that run between casinos. By DEFCON, the new monorail might also be operational.

    Being sixteen once myself, a bigger concern is that you may get very frustrated in Las Vegas if you stray far from the CON, because you'll have to wait until you're 21 to participate in much of want you might want to do.

    Maybe you can buy a car in Vegas for $400 that is on its last legs, then just junk it at the end of con.

    Better yet, push it in the pool. :>

    Reminds me of the Air Force jet pilot who could not get a rental car since he waqs under 25 years old. :>

    Check out Ugly Duckling, Thrifty, or other companies that do not stock this years' model with under 10,000 miles on it.
