Wagoner said GM is “undertaking a strategic review of the Hummer brand, to determine its fit with GM’s evolving product portfolio” in light of changing market conditions.
“At this point, we are considering all options for the Hummer brand… everything from a complete revamp of the product lineup to partial or complete sale of the brand,” he said.
It’s about freakin time. The Hummer has always been a giant “fuck you” to the Earth: “I have money, I consume outrageously, and screw all the rest of you.”
I’m not alone in my dislike; there is an entire website devoted to hatred of the Hummer: Fuck You and your H2.
I hate Hummers, and they seem to hate me right back. I guess having an Insight that gets 64mpg is bound to make them mad. I love the juxtaposition in this photo (and the Insight is the same color as mine!)
Does anyone have a side photo of an Insight and a Hummer, so you can really see the difference?
I used to always park next to Hummers like this, just to make a point. Now…I hide my car away. People are pissed about gas prices, and they aren’t afraid to yell at me at the gas pump. I also have actually, for the first time, thought about theft as an issue.
Interestingly, someone is trying to sell a 2004 Insight for $24,000. That’s $6000 more than the original selling price of the car when it was new!! A 2001 just sold at $18,000 on eBay. Apparently, people are waking up to the value in an Insight. Too bad Honda quit making them last year :(
I’m rather tempted to put mine up on the block with a similar price, to see if there are any takers. Of course, I’d have to clean it first.
Naw. Too much work.
Also, and completely unrelated: The movie Fargo, in 5 seconds. LOL!
