Hummer H-1 To Go The Way Of The Dinosaurs

The Hummer H-1, the massive so-called SUV, will soon go the way of the dinosaurs whose fossilized remains comprise most of the carbon based fuel which it consumes in great amounts. The civilian version of the Hummer is one of those bad ideas whose time should never have come. As far as that goes, the military Hummer seems like a bad idea also. Intended as a replacement for the venerable jeep, the Hummer has instead morphed into our front line armored vehicle, a role it was not designed for. This has cost countless lives of servicemen. Good riddance to this macho expression of over-consumerism! Links:

My husband hates these. He always makes a comment about keying one if he sees it. They just scream "look at me, I have money" Really, do you need to drive a hummer to the grocery store? I doubt it. But then we all have those things that are excessive. I remember hosting two boys from Cameroon and they were in awe of our houses for our cars. Never thought of a garage as excessive until then.
