So, the end has finally come for the old Hummer. Yes, THAT Hummer. WHAT HAPPENED?! Where did it all go wrong?! We used to LOVE the Hummer. HECK! Back in 2002 tax payers and oil exporting countries used to SUBSIDIZE the Hummer through a government issued $100,000 tax credit (later reduced to $25,000), yet today GM announces that they are shutting it down all together. No “making a smaller car”, no “selling the brand to China”; just wiping their hands and walking away.
Isn’t that sad? I feel a bit like Jon Stewart back on 1/20/09. But, I actually will miss the brand a bit. Now we’ll never hear any more talk of the Hummer bicycle, scooter, eyewear, heck think of how awesome the the Hummer O2 would have been. The dream is now over. Look out FJ Cruiser, you’re next!
(Dang, I should got a Ruckus)
