They matched people who needed cars shipped with people who couldn't afford to rent a car.

As a driver, you signed up and they did a criminal/driving check. For the price of gas, you got a one-way auto rental (try finding an affordable one-way car rental today). The owner of the car got their ride shipped on the cheap.

Was a good system. I think they switched to paid professional drivers, but their original model is sorta proto-quasi-crowdsourcing
