    The all mighty Hummer

    Funny story I’ve been told by dealer who imports Hummers into the UK.

    Apparently GM, Hummers parent company are about to officially sell the new ‘small’ H3 in right-hand drive form for the UK.
    So potential owners can experience off-roading Hummer style they have been trying to find a site which they can use to its full extent with the current H2. So far they’ve only managed to find one gentle enough for the all mighty Hummer, but they had to remove the side steps and fit modified wheels to prevent them getting damaged.

    The new H3 Hummers are now small enough to squeeze through UK alleyways and city streets. With the H2, you had to modify it, narrowing its footprint with thinner tires and removing the bulging wheel wells, to prevent running into things. Most cars in the UK are small.

    I don't know what they are charging across the pond, but a top of the line H3 doesn't break $40k in the US if I remember correctly. Still, it's way too much money for something with the same anemic 5 cylinder GM puts in the Colorado. There are considerably better SUVs than the H3, especially in Europe. Not that a ton of people want to drive them over there.

    I had though that the H3 basically was a Colorado (frame-wise), just a new body. Same with the H2 and GMC 1500. That's what gets me most about these things, make 'em look all pretty and nice, but really they're just a buck-toothed, lice ridden cowpoke with some new clothes. I know i should be more irate about environmental damage they can/do cause and all the other assorted ho-ha, but i can't stand deception.

    Can you name the truck with four wheel drive,
    smells like a steak and seats thirty-five..

    Canyonero! Canyonero!

    Well, it goes real slow with the hammer down,
    It's the country-fried truck endorsed by a clown!

    Canyonero! Yah! Canyonero!

    The Federal Highway comission has ruled the
    Canyonero unsafe for highway or city driving.

    Canyonero!

    12 yards long, 2 lanes wide,
    65 tons of American Pride!

    Canyonero! Canyonero!

    Top of the line in utility sports,
    Unexplained fires are a matter for the courts!

    Canyonero! Canyonero!

    She blinds everybody with her super high beams,
    She's a squirrel crushing, deer smacking, driving machine!

    Canyonero!-oh woah, Canyonero!

    Drive Canyonero!

    Woah Canyonero!

    Woah!
