Default Hey, hey, hey...GOODBYE!!!!

The evening news just announced that they will no longer make the H1 Hummer for consumers. At 10 mpg, they said "It just doesn't have a place in everyday life, anymore."

Get Down!!!

Yeah! About time. Now if we can rid the world of the other Hummers, we would be moving in the right direction.

What will our congresspeople drive now when they want to pretend to care about the outdoors and the military?

Dang. I was hoping to eventually buy one and convert it to greasel!

Owner of 'Eeyore', a 2004 Prius. Only took 2 days from start of search to delivery.

8 years of ownership, 115,000 miles, about 40 MPG average at present.

That would be a REAL novelty. Imagine, a Hummer running on French fry grease..a Hummer NOT running on fossil fuels (and of course there'd be a big sign on it to that effect). There's only one problem: it would burn so much grease it would hog it from about 20 other greaselers!

Not that GM/AM General sold much more than about 900 of the Hummer H1, at ~$100,000 each... The H2 is just a Chevy Suburban with a Hummer-looking body design and the name.

Last I had heard, the military was testing a hybrid version of the HMMWV (older military brother of the Hummer) Reduced fuel use (so less fuel support required), EV 'stealth' mode (reduced heat signature), submersible use, and ability to be portable generator, all in one.

Sounds like somthing the military would spend a couple million of our tax dollars on. Seems like they have forgotten they are suppose to win a war!
And MRV, I am so used to reading the true facts from your posts that I was surprised to see the remark that the H2 is just a Chevy Suburban that looks like an H1.
About the only similarity between the two vehicles are a slight relationship through Chevy in name. You can "E" mail GM and they will send you a 40 page brochure that "will knock your socks off!" with state of the art engineering facts.
All other "off road" vehicles in the world do not hold a candle to an H2.
They are expensive to build and expensive to own and a natural growth of the SUV movement in a car loving country, and probably have the same small number of devoted fans that swear by them as the Prius.
My statement meaning that about ten percent of Prius owners are fanatics, (nothing wrong with that) and the other ninety per-cent have purchased fuel efficient cars, and mainly for that principal reason.

So, the military is really in a damned if they do and damned if they do situation....

People whine when we burn fossil fuel for the vehicle and then whine when we spend money to develop and produce more efficient vehicles.

'Course, all would be rosey in this forum if that vehicle were Toyota HSD based though, wouldn't it
