Looking to rent DSLR Car Rig mount

I've done a brief search in a number of different sections without any success so I looked to this section with hope of finding some answers.
I'm wondering if any of ya'll know of any people or websites that rent out the boomstick-style rigs for DSLRs? Looking to do some rolling rig shots, but I don't want to spend 1,000+ for the carcamerarig.com products. Any help would be stellar!

(I also live in the Denver area, but I spend a great amount of time in Minneapolis as well as South east Florida)

I was just about to suggest Calumet Photo, but just learned they went belly up last year. Being in the UK and mostly Chicago, I didn't notice as the UK wasn't affected and the Chicago location that I usually only go to in Oak Brook never closed...at least, when I was there.

That said, these guys are in Denver. Try them?

I built my own rolling rig setup for ~$200. If you were local I'd let you have it for $100 since its gathered dust for the past two years.

Pardon the crappy basement lighting, but here's what it looks like:


Two Manfrotto Avenger F1100 6" Pump Cups:

Two Matthews Super Mafer Clamps:

12 to 16 feet of 2" galvanized pipe cut into 3' sections and 3-4 pipe connectors from Home Depot.

Shoot car to car on the highway, no photoshop needed. Also you don't drive a car that has a rig on it. The car isn't even running. See my comments in the other thread regarding rigs.
