Moderation in all things is obviously not the motto of today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe H1 homage. Let’s see if this six-door, Suburban-based beast comes with a price that’s just as excessive.
It should surprise nobody that legendary rapper Tupac Shakur rolled in style. Check out this awesome Hummer H1, which a Boston-based auction house claims was 2Pac’s final vehicle purchase before his untimely death in 1996. If you’re a frivolous spender who’s okay with buying a highly compromised vehicle, and you’re a…
Texas is inundated with torrential rain and biblical flooding. Roads are turning to rivers and carrying cars off all over the joint. Perfect time to take the ol’ Hummer out for a test drive!
I recently took my Hummer to CarMax for an appraisal, which was carried out by several helpful, perky CarMax employees who clearly thought I was certifiably insane.
When you own an original Hummer, you get a lot of questions. Why is it so big? Why do you need a vehicle like this? Do you have any regard for the environment? Are you a complete idiot? Well today, you’re in for a treat, because I’ve decided to ignore all of these pressing issues and instead tell you how I get my…
I recently had the opportunity to find out what random strangers on the street think about my Hummer. I did this from a safe distance, observing through a lens, like a field biologist trying to assess zebra mating patterns.
A few weeks ago, I got an e-mail from a racing instructor named Ron, asking if I wanted to get some track time in my Nissan Skyline GT-R. So I pondered Ron’s question for several minutes, and I really thought about it, and then a light bulb went off in my head. And this is how I ended up on a race track with a…
I recently let 20 of my friends drive my enormous, military-style Hummer through a city that was designed back when the Clydesdale was the largest form of transportation. It was great.
I’ve decided to devote today’s column to answering a pressing question that many of you have no doubt been asking: what if I live in the middle of a large, crowded, major city, but my automobile of choice is an enormous, gas-guzzling military vehicle?
I recently became acquainted with one of my neighbors. Actually, “acquainted” isn’t really the right term. More like: “anonymously berated for owning and operating a giant yellow Hummer.”
As many of you know, I recently purchased a Hummer. And not one of those H2 or H3 knock-off Hummers that are owned by people who wear football jerseys to church. I mean the hardcore, military-style, original Hummer, which shares its overall aerodynamic profile with a state map of Utah.
As many of you know, I recently purchased a Hummer. For those of you who don't know much about the Hummer, allow me to explain: this is a hardcore, serious, off-road-ready military vehicle designed to do battle in camel-infested nations, except mine has a CD player.
The car that will tell everyone you haven't moved on from your days as a semi-successful TV action star in the early ‘90s, this horribly ugly slant-nosed Hummer H1 is one of only two ever made.
A madman Ford nut is hand-building an incredible Hummer H1 replica on the bones of a junker Ford F-150. The full scope of this fabrication fest can only be appreciated in the huge gallery below.
Automotive News reports that GM President and Chief Operating Officer Fritz Henderson told reporters at a recent press conference in India that the sale of the Hummer brand is on an "urgent basis." That's no surprise, since General Motors is predicting a US vehicle market of around 14 million units for 2008, down from…
No, this isn't a ploy by Hummer to finally break through into the hippie subconscious. Artists at this year's Burning Man festival have built a gigantic Hummer, named the Bummer, meant to get us thinking about consumerism or something. [SFGate, Photo: Frederic Larson/The Chronicle ]
China Car Times offers more details on our earlier report that no company seems to want a Hummer from GM, giving us the low-down on insider reasons why Changfeng's in denial.
