Vanguard Automotive Group was a company based in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Vanguard purchased ANC Rental, owner of National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car. The company had a fleet of nearly 300,000 vehicles, mainly from Ford and Chrysler, and operated over 1,500 locations.[1] In 2007 Enterprise agreed to purchase a controlling share in the company from Cerberus Capital Management.[2] A sale to rival Enterprise Rent-A-Car was completed on Aug 1, 2007, making the combined Enterprise-Alamo-National the largest US car rental operation, ahead of The Hertz Corporation, and rival Avis Budget Group.
