What Happened To The Hummer?

Pubblicato il 12 nov 2019
The Hummer was an angular, militaristic, go-anywhere truck that became an emblem of 1990s pop culture. General Motors' Hummer was a coveted status symbol sought by celebrities and a sometimes mocked and vilified example of how far of America's newfound love for SUVs had gone. But in 2009, GM put several of its brands to the ax, including Pontiac, Saab, and Hummer. While the Hummer had a brief lifespan of just under two decades, it made a lasting impression on the auto industry.
Clarification: General Motors ended Oldsmobile production in 2004, a few years before GM stopped producing the other brands mentioned at 8:05.

  • A wonderful lady suggested to some people in the Deep South the Hummer should be the official vehicle of a planned memorial museum. The museum is for an American author who, as a young boy with his pet pooch, contributed to the American home front during WWII.

  • I love the design of the hummer, too bad it’s gone. I remember testing MW2 inside a Hummer limo at a local gaming convention. Good times..
