Hummer

Just saw an ad for the Hummer H3.

Hummer is the only company that I know that has gone from a great product, the original Hummer, and made it worse so that more people can afford it. I wish Ferrari would do something like that. By the way, it kills me to say that Hummer initially had a great product because they are a GM company and I am a diehard blue oval owner.

As far as I am concerned a hummer would be worthless as a hunting vehicle. I would like to see you get one down a couple of two tracks I was scouting turkeys on today. That is with out tearing the fenders off.

The original hummvees were tested on the Silver Lake Sand Dunes just west of where I live. They didn't fare out very well. They rolled one over and a bunch of guys got broke up pretty bad.

I have a copy of an early advertizement booklet. The cover shows it parked in front of the Little Point Sauble Lighthouse.

WOW! If they rolled an H1 they must have been trying to roll it. I do agree about the width, though. I think that would be my only beef with one. Most of the roads I travel are narrow enough that I scraped the sides of my Cherokee, I couldn't imagine trying to take an H1.

Areas I have hunted would have Hummer parts striped off all over the place. They need to be left in the yuppy driveways lol

Multibeard,

I must not be a "good" lawyer because I see no need for me having a Hummer limo, much less any other limo for that matter. I am getting married in July and the limo selections that fit my bridal party were a Ford Excursion, Cadillar Escalade, or Hummer. I went with the Ford.

You can get the true mil surplus hummers in the 18-25k range in green white and beige. I want one with a couple of bullet holes in it so those dents and dings give her a real personality.

Hawkeye,

Most of my clients know that I am extremely conservative and would never be driving around a Mercedes, Lexis, or Acura even if I had the money. First of all, I cannot bring myself to buying a car made by a Japanese company. Second of all, I can think of a lot better things to do with the money than spend it on a car. Now, I might eventually buy a Lincoln and/or Mercury, but that isn't going to happen anytime soon because the Taurus, F-350, or my fiance's Hyundai Sonata (sheesh) would have to blow up and they all seem to be running fine right now, knock on wood. Of course, I am hoping for the demise of the Hyundai before any of the others so that I can have a complete Ford fleet once again, but I am still hoping to get several 100 thousand miles out of the Sonata.

Believe it or not, a lot of my clients are in the construction industry and they think it is pretty cool when I pull up with an F-350 crew cab with a full size bed. I have one client that has the exact same truck as me, but it is one year older.
