While we are on the subject of GMs....

Found a GM vehicle I like!




Hummer H2....

I have been driving one for the past 2 days, and while its not a Mercedes, its pretty fun to drive. The numbness and floaty ride is nice. It looks almost exactly like that one (dripping in chrome), but has 20s on it...

Why not just put huge bowls of gasoline out in your yard and set it on fire? It would probably still not hurt the environment as much.

Hummers are an abomination....and are unsafe. Lets just say in an accident you're still going to want to be in a MB instead.

Absolutely, hands down, completely, and beyond any shadow of a doubt, the worst, most horrible, disgusting, heap of crap car I have ever driven....bar none.

In the bottom pick, a W126 would have fared better? I dont know man, but I have a feeling that the nose would have sat lower than the back of that bus, and would have dove under it.... Leaving the upper part of the car exposed... Which would mean you would have no head.

The original is a solid vehicle, the H2 is a plastic and chrome abomination.

Yep, its essentially a Tahoe with lots of extra ugly and weight added to it. And still incapable in an off road situation.

Thats pretty accurate actually. What I didn't throw into the mix is that they should all be melted down into something useful...like railroad tracks

I know that it has leaf springs in the back....but after the absolute torture of driving the H2 I knew that anything with the name Hummer should be avoided at all costs.
