Once again, North America finds itself addicted to trucks and SUVs, spurred on by cheap gas. What we lack is a rolling symbol of this phenomenon; the last time it happened, it was without question the Hummer H2.
Today's RC Adventure has some great mud slopping, realistic paint jobs, great settings in snow and sand, and a MAN KAT rescuing a Hummer H2. Not sure what to make of the soft-jazz sound track though.
Eastern Europe has been under a Siberian spell for a week or so, prompting the owner of a Hummer H2 to test the six inches of ice on Hungary’s Lake Balaton for some Siberian-style winter driving. What he apparently forgot was that a few days of 10-degree weather does not magically turn Lake Balaton into Lake Baikal.
These days it takes a certain egotistical fortitude to drive a Hummer H2 and revel in the conspicuous consumption. Other people? Well, they're ridiculed. Take that LOL OIL Tesla. Oh Packer backers, you so crazy.
At the rate things are going with model bloat, we wouldn't be surprised if this was actually a prototype for an upcoming Mini. It's not. It's actually the Mini media shuttle. Obese car journalists don't fit in Mini backseats.
Artist Jeremy Dean created the ultimate vehicle for wealthy, privileged Americans in a post-financiapocalyptic, post-oil war imaginary and heavily satirical future: the Horse-Drawn Hummer. Here is its story.
The fundamental problem with the slowly dying Hummer wasn't the product. The brand was long ago usurped by knuckleheads and used as a symbol of conspicuous consumption and this tuner abomination is part of the problem. Unleash the hounds!
After the the brand has existed for months in sale-or-no-sale purgatory and seeing product demand fall to a quarter of capacity, GM's decided to halt production of all Hummer products until sale to its Chinese suitors is complete.
Washington DC plainclothes officer Detective Bayler lost his cool when a snowball from a pre-organized neighborhood snowball fight hit his Hummer H2. He got out, drew his side arm and threatened the snowballers. On video. NSFW language ahead.
Hummer is being sold to China's Sichuan Tengzhong Heavy Industrial Machinery with production of current generation vehicles to be carried out under contract by GM. Moving forward, Hummer's new Chinese leaders plans to get smaller with an H4 and H5.
Remember the "Happy Jack" Hummer commercial with the soapbox H2 that doesn't stand a chance against speedier competition till the kid driver goes off-road to win the race? Well, someone built a crappy replica and it's for sale on EBay.
A cost many forget when buying a new car is that with different cars come different insurance prices. Want to know why? We'll show you with this list of the 20 most expensive cars to insure for 2009.
Yeah, that's got to be it. Although, in addition to the parking job, we're wondering what someone who's handicapped is doing in such a high-off-the-ground vehicle. [via Digg]
A study of traffic tickets revealing the most and least ticketed vehicles reinforces obvious stereotypes: Hummer owners are arrogant, self-centered and over-indulgent, while drivers of Buick Park Avenues appear to have no discernible pulse.
