H1 Goes Bye-Bye

GM's announced that the Hummer H1 will cease production this year, saying that they want to take the brand in a more mass-market direction. We think this is dumb, not so much the wanting-to-increase-sales thing, but killing the vehicle that started it all. Of course, the H1 is a ridiculous machine. But it's a halo for the brand, and without it, the other Hummers are just going to seem like Chevys with upgraded off-road suspensions and plastic gewgaws tacked on. Oh wait, that's pretty much what they are. Meanwhile, thanks to the war, AM General doesn't expect any layoffs. Cue H sker D 's M.I.C. and drop the hammer.
