Me too actually, I haven't been able to decide if it's funny or just "plane" wrong [:p]

The pilots obviously set it up since they aren't the least bit surprised, and this means they did it a number of times...

8500 pounds of unimaginative shit marketed at men with an inferiority complex and soccer moms.

I remember reading somewhere that doing that zero gravity thing makes you throw up.

Wonder if they wound up with dog chuck all over them which is why the vid ends so quickly.

I hope so [;)]

Damn what a bunch of haters.

While I would not purchase a Hummer I can apperciate that there are a number of owners out there who like and take as much pride in their vehicles as the members of this board.

Everyone here hates it when trolls come on here and start talking smack and posting crap. Yet you are going to advocate going to someone elses site and doing the same thing?

RE: Hummer mass retaliation?

I'd love to have one of the military type. What's that designated, H1? I don't know. I think it is beautiful. It looks exactly like what it is designed to do and I think there is a particular form of beauty in honest simplicity of design.

The H2 doesn't do much for me. Isn't it essentially a Suburban drive train and suspension with a boxy body?

Buy it and drive it if you like it. Bottom line, I don't give a s**t.

There is no need for mass retaliation.
Like Bot said, I would not mind a military version, I think they are cool.

Yeah: it LOOKS the part, but it's all show and no go. The military Hummer is kinda like Dr Who's tardis in reverse i.e. huge on the ouside but tiny on the inside. They're too wide to fit into some cargo planes, so other armies aren't buying 'em. And they're not really big enough to be classed as load carriers.

If you like the look of them and want one for a fun-machine, then I'd say go for it. (When you get bored with it throw it to the Unimogs [;)])
